Meet Maisie Haney, an official CAPA blogger in London for fall 2018:
University: Rollins College
Major: Art History
Study abroad location: London, England
Internship or volunteer placement: Photobox
What are you most excited about studying abroad?
I will be taking a post-war pop culture class, and London is the ultimate location for this time period, as I am most excited to learn about one of my favorite music genres (the punk music, that is). Zines emerged with punk music as fans, musicians, and artists alike created them, so it really all just seems perfectly timed. I knew when going abroad that I would want to broaden my artistic mediums, and I've always wanted to get started on making a few zines.
What are three of your hobbies and interests?
Disc jockeying on the radio, collaging, and zines!!!
What’s one personal goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
By focusing my energies on things I love to do, I hope to regain confidence in myself. What I love is valid and I want nothing more than to feel driven by this idea.
What’s one professional goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
I hope to land an internship that will allow me to learn more and talk to other people who share the same interests as me. I hope to find a place for my love for zines in the professional art world.
What can we look forward to reading about in your posts?
You can look forward to watching me run wild in a place home to so many of my interests—I will be learning about punk music and attending punk shows, I will be learning about modern art and dabbling in more contemporary art styles myself. You can look forward to reading about a girl in her element, and what she has to say about the city of her dreams.
Anything else you’d like to say to people reading for the first time?
I love rock and roll.
