UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS (UARTS)
Ana Villarreal is a senior Graphic Design student at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She is a first generation Mexican-American who grew up in Metepec, Mexico and Seoul, South Korea. She is very proud of her cultural heritage and shows this appreciation in her design work, which has a range of cultural influences. Ana loves to travel and to learn about new places, languages and people. In her free time, she loves to exercise, spend time outdoors, and visit museums and other places where she can find challenges and inspiration. Creative from a young age, but coming from a family of engineers and business-minded individuals, a design career felt like a natural choice for her. Ana has been involved with internships that focus on social causes, and is passionate about the power of design and innovation in driving social progress.
