BFA Student Profile Series: Kenji

Each week we will be featuring a student from our class for our Student Profile Series, where you can get to know more about the person both inside and outside of the classroom.

Meet Kenji Chang, the unofficial class photographer, as she steps out from behind the camera. With her lighthearted nature and sense of humor, whether she means to be funny or not,  there’s never a dull moment with her around. Also, check out her photography if you get the chance because even if you were there or missed out on being there, you don’t want to miss out on how she captured the moment.
