Bio

My name is Qing Zhang and I am studying at new York City college of technology. My major is communication design. Before choosing this major, I was curious about this major and wanted to challenge myself to try to become a designer. I haven’t studied high school in the United States. In fact, I didn’t like studying in China so my English foundation is very poor. On the other hand, I also hope that this major will improve my English.

I didn’t have any art foundation before I chose this major. So when I started to take a professional course, it was difficult for me to communicate with other people, and it was difficult for me to learn to draw. I don’t have a great goal. I hope that I can learn every lesson I have, and that every lesson is rewarding. When I can successfully complete all the courses, I will try to work towards a designer.
