YEUN-ALLARDSAGE

SAGE COLLEGE OF ALBANY

Yeun Allard loved comics and cartoons as a kid and dreamed of becoming a powerful hero, just like the ones she saw on paper and tv. Shifting aimlessly from school to retail work, Yeun struggled for years before finally finding a sense of identity and the power in herself to succeed. She is now in her senior year at Sage College of Albany, working her magic in Graphic + Media Design. Yeun keeps her childhood dreams alive by aspiring to be a design hero, and is working hard at making the world around her a better place.
