“Design is about embracing individuality and uniqueness, yet it is also about collectiveness and cohesion.”
I am a graduate of North Carolina State University. I received a B.A. in Design Studies. My major afforded me the autonomy to peruses various aspects of design. Most notably it piqued my curiosity in learning about the human experience and how it relates to design. Currently, I am a graduate student at Duke University pursuing a Master's Degree in Liberal Studies as well as a certificate in Innovations & Entrepreneurship because I want to be part of an industry; that is creative, research-driven, and where innovations are used to solve the most pressing issues that our society faces today.
As designers, we tell stories through our work and we have a great deal of influence on the world around us. We try to create solutions to the obstacles that surround us. The most amazing aspect of design is that it encompasses everything in the world around us. Design is about embracing individuality and uniqueness, yet it is also about collectiveness and cohesion. Design is also about truth. When a person is authentic and honest with themselves, it shows in their work.
My goal is to be a responsible designer. One of the core values of design is the responsibility, Being aware of what we present to the world. Design has influenced me to see the beauty in the world around me and to find truth in design. Ultimately, I want people to find validity in what I put out into the world. I believe good design will make the world a better place and help solve the problem of tomorrow today.
