UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI (DAAP)

I am a senior and I want to make a difference with my design. I want to solve real world problems; to be involved in strategic initiatives and not just aesthetic improvement. I love the process of service design, of how strategy and research can lead to design and how design doesn’t have to, shouldn’t ever, exist in a silo. I am a constantly curious person, always asking why and delving into purpose. I want to make a difference for people. To design for people. To change the world. To be a strategist, a storyteller, an innovator, a creative, a writer, and a designer. I want to see how all of these things can play together. I am passionate about people and human interaction. I want to make a difference. I want to be involved in a role broader than design. I want to travel and to explore new places. And most importantly I want to be happy.
