Replacing My Face on a Movie Poster
For one of my Comm316 class assignments, we were given the awesome task of re-creating a movie poster that included a self-portrait (aka swapping faces).

The idea came from my friend, Maddie. On the first night of class, she said that I reminded her of Melissa McCarthy. What?!? No one has ever said that to me before. This is where the idea to use one of Melissa McCarthy’s movies for my poster re-creation. Add the idea of going back to school later in life — and Life of the Party was a perfect fit!
