Shine Fu, a former staff member of Temple City Voice, explains how being in TCV helped her beyond her high school years.
Fu was a comic artist for Temple City Voice and drew comics for the weekly paper. She is majoring in studio art at the University of California, San Diego and is currently completing her sophomore year at UCSD.
Fu’s plans for the future include transferring to Parsons School of Design in New York and search for a career in fashion.
Fu volunteered at TCV for her senior year of high school and says that she gained experience in time management and commitment during her time with TCV.
“As a member of TCV,” said Fu. “I really had to find the driving force behind self-motivation to be able to turn in work.”
In addition, her work as a comic artist prepared her for her design major and extracurricular activities in college. Much like with TCV, she now helps at a fashion magazine at UCSD.
“It’s hard not to slack when you’re just volunteering,” said Fu, “I guess that motivation really carried through with me to college since now, instead of drawing comics, I design layouts for a student-run fashion magazine on campus.”
Fu is just one of the many TCV alumni who have graduated from high school who continue to use the skills they learned at TCV in college and beyond.
