I am a senior double majoring in Design and Business Economics at UC Davis.
I wanted to be an animator. At Disneyland, the Animation Academy was my favorite attraction
(seriously, it wasn’t a real trip otherwise). Once I got home, I'd take those sketches and transfer them into sticky-note flip books to write new adventures for the characters.
What I loved about it and what connected me to the characters was the storytelling.
Although it wasn't the path I chose, it got me curious about design's power to influence, teach, and inspire.
