UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA SCHOOL OF DESIGN
Kumbit (Hanna) Soh is a senior majoring in Graphic Design. Born in Fiji and raised in South Korea and Brazil, she experienced diverse cultures ever since a young age. In the process of moving countries, she often faced challenges communicating in a new language. Realizing that drawing could reach others when words could not, she began to engage with communities through drawing and designing. Today, design is a part of her identity. It serves not only as a tool of communication and relationship-building, but also an agent of self-expression. Kumbit believes that expression and communication through design is unbounded by language barriers, enabling her to reach beyond words.
