When I graduated high school, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. I learned about the graphic design program from my sister and made it my goal to end up there once I transferred out of community college. I didn't have the best understanding of what design was at the time, but being in the program has completely shifted what design is to me. Design is about storytelling, educating, problem solving, and collaborating. Design also has the power to bring people together. Although this program introduced me to so many opportunities, my classmates are the ones that constantly inspire me and give me passion and the confidence to be a better designer, and I will always be grateful for that.
