The Civics Poster

I'm a third year student at the University of Cincinnati majoring in Graphic Communication Design at the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. Recently, I have declared a minor in Entrepreneurship Studies through the Linder College of Business. I am interested in gaining knowledge about graphic design through my education at DAAP. Thus far, in my education I have learned how to problem solve and create solutions using design thinking. I have also learned how to use teamwork and collaboration to make the end result as strong as possible. I have participated in events on campus and in the community revolving around entrepreneurship endeavors and creating startups. This is where I found my interest in entrepreneurship after I realized I can use my creativity and design thinking skills to truly create something innovative and revolutionary.
