"Difference between something good & something great = attention to detail."

I was adopted from South Korea when I was four months old and grew up in Westlake, Ohio. At an early age, I took a huge interest in art and computers; never realizing that I’d continue those interests later on in life. My parents remind me of a cute story from my childhood. When I was in third grade my teacher would ask me to help her on the computer. Not only do I work well with others, but my ambitions have been forever growing. After graduating from Westlake High School, I continued my interests in visual communications design. I found that I could use my love for art, creativity, and attention to detail in determining my career choice. I will be graduating from college in December of 2018 with honors and have worked hard to make it on to the dean’s list every semester. I have built experience during my education by working freelance and interning with Key Bank. Currently I am interning with a design company, Awesome Otter.
