Quick Q&A with Jacqui:
How did you become interested in design?
I have always loved drawing and I became interested in using the tool to communicate ideas to a broad audience when I was exposed to college student design work in high school. Representatives from several art and design colleges visited while I was in high school and I was fascinated by what the students at these colleges were creating.
Professionally, what are you most passionate about?
Exposing myself to new methods of creative thinking and new people while working on projects that create impact in the community.
