I’m a hardworking individual that strives to overcome challenges and learn something new everyday. By learning new techniques, I can better myself as a designer and become more confident with the work I produce. I believe that a designer never stops learning, even after graduation. With this in mind, it makes me eager and less fearful of the world that awaits me in the design industry. Over the years, I’ve become more confident in my ability to work and communicate in a group. And this makes me excited to work alongside experienced designers, and to learn from them.
