KENNESAW STATE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF ART & DESIGN

I am currently enrolled at Kennesaw State University studying for a degree in Graphic Communications. I decided to pursue Graphic Design after seeing the program’s successful involvement in the design industry and the range of job opportunities that come with this major. With no prior knowledge of design or Adobe software, I have become proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, and AfterEffects. I also gained experience at leading print manufacturer, Heidelberg USA, as the Creative Services Intern. This broadened my knowledge of prepress, printing, and marketing as well as design. On the side, I have my own Etsy shop where I create and sell pet portraits. I enjoy pushing myself beyond what I could have imagined in design, prepress and marketing, and to develop new and original ideas.
