BFA Graphic Design Student
Class of 2019
San Diego, California

I joined the DSAB to make positive change within the College of Design in regards to diversity. I also wanted to get involved with how students make connections and foster lifelong relationships in the College of Design. The programs the DSAB hosts are an incredibly important part of the experience as a designer at the University of Minnesota and I want to be sure those programs align with the current students’ goals.
