Student Designer/Washington University in St. Louis
How Did You Break Into The Industry / Your First Job
I took an interest in pursuing graphic design as a career after my freshman year of college. Throughout that year, I found a peer mentor who was a senior also studying graphic design and marketing. She gave me advice, insight, and guidance into exploring my passion and ultimately led me to apply for her previous position as Student Designer in the Olin Marketing & Communications Center.
Long Term Career Goal
My current long-term goal is to become an Art Director at a top advertising agency. I want my designs to hold a significant impact in influencing society's perception of and feelings toward minorities, and to also encourage young black men and women to pursue their career goals, especially in creative fields.
