What type of art has had the most influence on where you are today?
Justin Pena is a second year student at California State University Long Beach studying as an electrical engineer major. When asked what type of art has had the most influence on him, Justin responded saying origami has had the most influence on him because it is relevant to his life. As an electrical engineer major, Justin explains that “origami and [his] major goes hand in hand because like engineering, with origami, you make something out of nothing.” Another reason why origami has the most influence is because is is relaxing and Justin usually turns to doing origami when it comes to his free time. Justin stated that he once made a paper rose everyday for the past year and gifted his roses to his girlfriend. Although art is a diverse concept, something as broad as origami can become influential in a person’s life.
