About Me
There are many words to describe myself, but if I had to choose one, it would be resilience. In the past four years, I have advanced in the face of adversity at UNT. My resilience granted me admission to UNT in 2017, despite receiving a rejection letter from the University a week prior. It allowed me to pass the Sophomore Portfolio Review, pull all-nighters, create art that I am proud of, and now, graduate with an arsenal of knowledge in Communication Design and Art History. In the future, I wish to combine my passion for design with my other interests, such as music, video games, and animation/film. 

What is your go-to phrase as a designer?
“Design is thinking made visual.” –Saul Bass
