“I strongly believe in art as a force that brings people together,” Ms. Albuquerque said. “If there was a theme to my time at St. John’s, it would be coming of age. It leaves me nostalgic when I think of the person I was when I arrived, but confident and exhilarated when I think of the person I’m becoming.”
