Blogging is new to me but I have finally decided to start my own. This will become a space for me to share my thoughts, meaningful experiences, and new learnings as I grow as a designer. To start off this blog post, I will briefly introduce myself! My name is Fiona, and I am currently studying at the York University/Sheridan College Program of Design (YSDN) in Toronto for design. I consider myself to be a pretty adventurous and outgoing person who loves to see new sights, meet new people, and to surround people with happiness. As a designer, I see myself as a self-motivated and passionate learner. School can teach someone a lot, but to really grow, reading the latest writings of my design idols, and doing side projects outside of school has really helped me.
This past summer, I was fortunate enough to intern at a few different places including McSweeney's, a publishing house in San Francisco. I've learned quite a lot of things over this summer from travelling and interning in a completely new city. It's true that traveling will change you like little else can, being able to give you new perspective and allow you to learn things about yourself that you never knew.
