My name is Jaqueline De La Cruz. I am 20 years old and have been with ALMA for 3 years. Prior to this job my experience with clay was in high school. I took ceramics for 3 years and really enjoyed working with my hands. During my second year with ALMA I became a lead apprentice. With this position I have more responsibilities. I assist the lead artists’ and apprentices to make sure they have everything they need and to also answer any questions they may have. I like to form new ideas with the many different people I work with. I can’t wait to see how all our ideas from the question “What comes after healing” unite to form the mural of 2019, for all of Albuquerque to see.
