Former Clarion Art Student Remembers Art Club for National Geographic Contest

CLARION, Pa. (EYT) – Clarion Area graduate Chrissie Liu chose to spotlight her high school and the Clarion Art History Club in a video entry and is now a semi-finalist for a Digital Correspondent position for National Geographic.

Competition for the position is strong, and the video can be watched online here and vote for her entry. While chances of winning the contest are slim with the competition, Liu feels it will still be a nice tribute to Mr. Ray Jones and the Clarion Art History Club.

“As a digital correspondent for Natgeo, I’d act as a virtual storyteller, traveling to various locations and filming short videos about what’s interesting in each destination to be shared on Natgeo’s online platforms,” said Liu.

According to the National Geographic, “As a recent graduate with a degree in anthropology, Chrissie Liu’s passion for travel stems from a deeper understanding of cultural phenomenon. Coupled with a creative mind, she is able to express her experiences with authenticity and intrigue. Having traveled to over 25 countries, she has plenty of experiences to share.”

Teacher and club advisor Ray Jones said she is in second place with 683 Likes.

“It would be great if as a community we can push this kid into the finals.” The end date is Jan. 31, 2017.

After graduating from Clarion Area, she continued her education at Clarion University.

“I graduated Clarion University in the winter of 2015 with a degree in anthropology and minors in Spanish, art, and honors,” said Liu.  ”After finishing undergrad, I moved to Paris to intern for ÉCU – The European Independent Film Festival – and traveled extensively across Europe and later North America.”

If selected for the position, she would consider the job the pinnacle of her career goals, and her only desire would be to keep the position for as long as possible.

Liu has some advice for aspiring artists.

“My advice to aspiring artists would be to just put yourself out there and keep creating.  Success does bring some level of happiness, but it’s not the end game.  Engage with the creative process, share your discoveries, get honest feedback, and you’ll always be positively evolving.”
