Hello and welcome to my website! I’m Ilsa Askren. I attend Freestyle Academy and Los Altos High. At Freestyle I am learning how to literally bring to life creative ideas I have had for years. More work than I could have imagined goes into each production, but the result is so fruitful! Each class goes hand in hand; in English I’m learning a lot about art, history, and how to voice my thoughts in the best way possible, in Digital Media I learn all the tricks to producing each part of a project, and in Animation I learn how to make half-a-centimeter movements become a whole film. I am so inspired by my peers at freestyle as well as the teachers and I’m grateful to say I enjoy school!
Aside from school, I like to spend my time running, playing guitar, coming up with fun vegan recipes, enjoying coffee dates with my friends, volunteering at my church, singing, painting, going on walks, or working at my great jobs at Stanford at the Office for Religious Life and Tin Pot Creamery. My hope is that this platform can show a little corner of the world what I spend some of my time working on.
