A senior studio arts major with a concentration in ceramics and sculpture, Gerald is a senior class marshal and orientation leader. She’s from the Chicago’s Southside.

“As an art major, I am always in a crunch for my materials and the amount of funds I have dictates how much I can explore with the work I create,” she says. “This typically leads to me downsizing or restricting my final product. This year, I was especially concerned because I am currently preparing for my senior thesis show, which includes the costs of creating the compositions but also installment, marketing material, and tons of other out of pocket expenses.”

Gerald relies on the Undergraduate Black and Hispanic Scholarship to create her art the way she envisions it. She’s proud to come from a long lineage of incredible Syracuse University black and Latino excellence, and excited to be a part of the SU family.
