Ashley Tsai Wins the SL6 For Her Stop Motion Video. I was impressed by this video, Ashley is on to something. She's only a freshman in college and put this together. I'm happy to give her this award while it's helpful not 10 years later when she doesn't need it.
One of the reasons I created this award is because of my early experiences in college and starting out as an artist. The administration and faculty at Duke are often disrespectful of people with creative gifts. They have a limited understanding of creativity and its value. As a student and alumni I found them arrogant, rude and not very helpful. I didn't like it and I try to be nice and help people because of it. At Duke, the administration and faculty are not good with positive reinforcement. It's a big issue there.
