Written Arts major with a concentration in Human Rights
Being a second-year student in the Written Arts Program here at Bard, and lover of spoken word, finding Skye muttering over her assigned texts is more than commonplace. Though in that same vein, one could say this too is Skye doing as she aspires to, in marrying her art form with that of others, orally and visually, in a manner that acts fluidly as a foundation for which her intersections can comfortably meet. If seen walking, she's likely returning from great conversation or great music. If seen on her bike, she's probably riding to and fro one of the (too) many on-campus clubs she either leads or is an active member of, such as The Difference in Media Project, Queer People of Color (QPOC), Culture Connect, POC Theatre Ensemble, and more.
