LEAH-VONFRICKEN

SAGE COLLEGE OF ALBANY

Leah is a senior completing her BFA in Graphic and Media Design. She believes that design is meant to serve as a solution and has the potential to influence even the greatest problems. She aspires to use powerful research-driven design to positively impact those issues which challenge our nation and world. Leah attributes her discipline and work ethic to the classical piano training her parents enrolled her in at the age of 5 (and regularly bribed her to attend with french fries). She considers the most important things in life to be other people, whether one is personally connected to them or not. She hopes to build a career which honors that philosophy and allows her to support a Golden Doodle (or two).
