Background: Anica Buckson is from Boston, Massachusetts where she was born and raised. She attended the Boston Arts Academy high school as a visual arts major before going to RISD.

Thoughts on the Collaboration: Working with other students collaboratively on one project was a challenge but also a great learning experience. This was a very different type of teamwork which requires a lot of communication with my peers but also being very independent in the one costume I was working on (bee costume). Working on the costume was a long and arduous process but finishing it was very rewarding. The most thrilling part of this project was fitting my costume work-in-progress on the dancers and seeing it come to life as they danced. This collaboration is definitely an experience to remember.

Anica is a junior studying apparel design at Rhode Island School of Design.
