Why I am excited to be a 2016 Scholar: I attended the IFVP Conference in Austin last year as a newcomer to the graphic recording field, and had my expectations exceeded in every way...the talent, energy and enthusiasm that this group possesses is matched only by their friendliness and moral support! I am BEYOND thrilled to be a 2016 IFVP scholar, and am excited to attend this year with some experience under my belt, a wealth of new questions to ask, and anticipation for the learning ahead! This is an exciting field that brings so much to the way we all communicate and share, and I'm so pleased and proud to be a part of it.

Why I am excited to be a 2016 Scholar: I’m honoured to have been chosen for an IFVP scholarship because it feels like an affirmation that my contributions are seen as useful and valuable. I also love that it gives me a chance to work with the conference team to create an unforgettable experience. And most of all, I’m just super-excited to be with my “tribe” again - the coolest people in the world!
