OTIS COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN
Rachel Fishman is working towards completing a Masters Degree at Otis College of Art and Design. She writes: “My name is Rachel. I am from Detroit. My time so far at Otis has taught me so much about myself and what I am passionate about. Being able to work intimately with innovative and inspiring colleagues and faculty has fostered an immense push in my personal growth as a thinker, maker and designer. When I’m not designing you can probably find me on Tumblr, exploring Los Angeles, and hanging out with a big German Shepherd/Akita mix named George Clooney.”
