Before coming to Missouri Western, Gabriel Relaford’s dream of becoming a professional artist was deemed impractical mainly because he is colorblind.
“I had professors, advisors and so many more encourage me to be an art major. The people here stepped in and got me colorblind glasses, a dream that I never could afford,” he said.
Now an Art Therapy major, Gabriel has been able to pursue dreams at Missouri Western that he never thought possible.
