My name is Juan Molina. This fall I will be entering my junior year at Northern Illinois University. I am in the College of Visual and Performing Arts pursuing my Bachelors of Fine Arts (BFA) with an emphasis in photography. I am very involved in the NIU community. I am a Northern Light Ambassador (NLA) for the School of Art. As part of NLA I am also a Co-Chair for the Communications and New Student Initiative Committee. I also participate in Best Buddies NIU, the Honors Peer Mentor Program, Honorable Mentions Student Editorial Board, Dream Action NIU, and the F.A.S.T. committee.
In my spare time I enjoy watching movies. In particular I’m quite fond of foreign, independent, and short films. I enjoy learning new things, forgetting them, and relearning them. I recently started growing cacti. I enjoy going to art shows, museums, and galleries. My main hope is to be a fine art artist with my work shown in some amazing museums and galleries around the world!
