My name is Sophia Lahey and I am a third year Political Science major with Cinema/English minors. I am SMCSU’s 2016-2017 Arts Officer. I, along with my wonderful commissioner Roya Abedi, am so excited to showcase the amazing artistic abilities of SMC! What I hope to accomplish in the upcoming year is to display more branches of art from singing and dancing to painting and photography. Also, I would love to promote the cultural side of the arts as SMC is a culturally diverse community of students. I believe that art is about expressing yourself. I want SMC students to express themselves and learn more about each other. I know that SMC is bursting with talented, artistic students and I can’t wait to bring out that talent and share it with the community! I want to get to know as many students as possible this year so please don’t be hesitant to contact me with questions of how to get your artistry noticed. This is going to be a great year.
