Graphic Design and Advertising

Bio

I am 21 years old and have been studying graphic design since my sophomore year of high school. Virtual learning has been hard for me because of the extra self-discipline I need to have, but I’ve been managing. I have lots of fun learning about advertising, graphic design, and doing projects. However, my procrastination does get the best of me sometimes. For fun, I play Valorant, and I also play acoustic guitar, ukulele, and recently started practicing bass guitar. Hair dye and makeup are also things I enjoy.
