NOVA SOUTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY

Sol Santecchia was very young when her family introduced her to golf, and she spent most of her childhood at the golf course. In Argentina, she played in tournaments while balancing school and other responsibilities. At 14, she played her first international competition and dreamed of pursuing a degree while playing golf for a US team. She’s proud now to be a member of Nova Southeastern University team where she discovered her other passion, graphic design. Sol is in her senior year, completing a bachelor’s in graphic design, along with minors in marketing and sports management. She plans to earn an MBA. By harnessing the determination, discipline and craftsmanship learned through golf, graphic design and business, Sol is looking forward to a successful career carving pathways forward for young dreamers. WHERE YOU BORN AND WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW? I was born in Mendoza, Argentina. Now, I live in Davie FL

HAVE THE CHALLENGES OF 2020 CHANGED HOW YOU THINK ABOUT GRAPHIC DESIGN AND DESIGNERS?

I have learned graphic designers can impact society by supporting social causes for positive change. Designers communicate messages that lead people to reflect, develop empathy for others, and consider different points of view.
