Hello :) My name is Nicole Saehwa Hu and I am a student at Freestyle Academy.

At Freestyle Academy, I attend Design, English Honors, and Digital Media classes. I decided to enroll in Freestyle because I have always been interested in the arts; whether it be visual, performing, or fine arts. I wanted to extend my artistic range by learning about Digital Arts and Design.

Below are links to other projects and websites that I have finished or am plan to work on in the future. The content from this website and the other websites it links to are created through my English, Design, and Digital Media courses while at Freestyle Academy. Our projects usually start in English class, which is like many other English classes. However, unlike classes at other schools or academies, our Design and Digital Media classes build off of and connect to the work done in our English class. Through these courses, I aspired to improve my skill and knowledge of photography, websites, coding, composing, and more.

Conceptual ✏
This section was the first unit of our Freestyle Journey. Through this exploration, we sought to creatively express ourselves through new forms of art such as web design, photography, and music.

Narrative ♡
The second unit, Narrative, was about being able to visally communicate a story. In this unit, we were able to take concepts learned and explored in the conceptual unit and apply them. My Narrative project was based on a Flash Fiction that I wrote about music and letting go. This is a topic that is really personal to me, because I have recently had to leave certain paths in order to pursue new ones.

Documentary ☽
The documenatary unit focused on one subject's through a journalistic style. This project aspires to signify the subjects significance in the community or in the world. I wrote my documentary book on wearable technology: what they have to offer us, how they are affecting society, and what we can do about the changes that they will bring.

Explorations ☼

This final unit of Junior year was dedicated to exploring my own passions and inspirations and creating a final researchbased project that exemplifies these passions. Because of my passion for fashion design, I focused my explorations project on fashion illustration. I really appreciated being able to work and do reasearch on a topic that I am interested and have a passion in. Reflecting back seeing as this is my last unit of my first year in Freestyle,I do not regret my decision to join Freestyle one bit. Although there were more than a few times that I struggled with learning all the new material, I am so happy with the results of my efforts. Making websites was and still is one of my biggest challenges, but i am so glad that I have been able to grow and will continue to grow in Freestyle. It's so fascinating to think back to all the things I've accomplished this past year because of y decision to join Freestyle. Freestyle really forced me to push my limits and for that, I am so grateful
