Q: What type of art do you create?
Talley: I mostly use acrylics, ink, and digital mediums. I try to make a little bit of everything using bright and bold colors.
Q: What do you prioritize in your life?
Talley: My priorities are making time in my day for friends and family, sharing with others my belief in God, and working my hardest every day.
Q: What is your favorite quote or saying? How has it impacted your life?
Talley: “You are not in this world to entertain people” Take time for yourself. No one should dictate who you are, that’s up to you to decide. I often look to this quote to help me focus on who I really am as a person.
Q: Do you do any service activities? If so how has it affected your life?
Talley: I am extremely involved at my church, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. I enjoy volunteering with the outreach and hospitality team to make other community members feel welcome. Through volunteer opportunities, I have been exposed to a variety of different people that I would not have met otherwise. Getting to know people gives me an understanding and appreciation of who they are and sharing my time with others makes me happy.
Q: How does this year's school theme, “So Will I” apply to you?
Talley: I feel like it applies to me by reinforcing the belief that we are all in this together. We should look at each other for strength and lift up others. My friends have helped me, and I have helped them.
Q: As an upperclassman, do you have any words of wisdom or advice to freshmen at Westminster Schools of Augusta?
Talley: I would say not to procrastinate and to make sure you have a social life alongside school. It’s no fun if you don’t have time to hang out with friends.
Q: What inspired you to pursue art?
Talley: I have always enjoyed art as far back as I can remember. Once I found out that it could become my profession, I became even more motivated to develop my God-given talent. I also am inspired by art because of the way it breaks down cultural, socioeconomic, or even social walls, this allows me to connect with a variety of people.
Q: What inspired you to pursue drama?
Talley: I performed on stage when I was younger. I enjoyed myself, but I didn’t really want to be in the spotlight again. When I came to Westminster, I found out that I could become a techie and work back scenes. Since then I have loved being behind the scenes helping with productions.
Q: What is your true passion?
Talley: My passion is creativity and new ideas. Just being able to create something that doesn’t exist and bringing it to life is so fulfilling.
Q: What do you like most at Westminster Schools of Augusta?
Talley: Westminster is a loving environment that promotes academic, spiritual, and emotional growth. I also have so many great friends and teachers that I couldn’t imagine going to another school!
