Week 15 – Student Interview – Michelle Howard


This weeks interview goes out to the Marvelous Michelle Howard. Michelle is from Cerritos and went to Cerritos High School. She came to CSULB because it was close and convenient. Also, she got to save a lot of money by staying home and not having to pay for dorms or apartments. Michelle is a Liberal Arts major and is still taking her time to figure out what she will do with her degree when she graduates.¬†Also, she says she was never really interested in art and took this class for GE purposes. Now ART110 has become her favorite since she’s been at Cal State Long Beach.

Once again, Michelle is a Liberal Arts major but she might change it in her future. At Cerritos High School she originally took classes to help her be a Pharmacy Technician. She even had a Pharmacy Technician internship over the summer with VM Pharmacy. But, she changed her mind because it did not interest her and she could not see herself doing it any longer. Now she loves it up to college experiences to help her decide what to do. Interesting fact about Michelle she makes YouTube videos about makeup. We talked more about this and after ART110 she may turn her website into a makeup website and she never knows who may see it. I wish her luck with her website, finals, and the rest of college. GOOD LUCK MICHELLE!!


Week 3 – Classmate Interview – Ericka Gustafson

Ericka Gustafson

My new friend this week is the lovely Ericka Gustafson. Ericka is from the bay are up north, while her family is originally from Sweden. She went to St. Frances high school and had an outstanding high school career which involved being in many clubs like photography and being on the honor. Long Beach was not her first choice in colleges but after looking into the school and seeing everything it had to offer her she eventually felt at home in Long Beach. Ericka is now in her second year at CSULB and is majoring in Communication with a minor in Marketing. Interesting fact, Ericka is part of the Delta Gamma sorority at CSULB.

Ericka is more interested in pictures and drawing art. She can relate to those more since she did photography in high school. In the picture Ericka is standing next to the piece of art she found most interesting. “You can look at this so many ways, like the saying your body is eating you alive, this is literally that. Also, it is drawn extremely well the artist must have put a lot of effort into it” says Ericka. She takes art 110 to get another perspective on art and to experience new pieces.
