My name is Will Duggan, I’m a senior at Marist College and I’m from a small suburb on Long Island, NY called Rockville Centre, NY. I try to live through my passions, which includes writing articles, listening to NPR, reading novels, singing, and watching/reviewing movies and TV shows. My favorites are ‘Good Will Hunting’ and ‘Game of Thrones’. What I admire about film, television, and books are that they are able to present art through stories. Whether the story is portrayed through pages or through a screen, these stories create art through the mind of the creator of the stories and the responding perspective of the story.
