Never would’ve imagined…

It wasn’t until my senior year of college that I really became serious about becoming an active member of AIGA. Starting almost immediately, I started participating in the monthly meetings that were held at the nearest chapter location, which¬† for me was over an hour away. That didn’t stop me from being an active member of my chapter. Because of AIGA, I can say that I became better at networking and meeting new people; was able to get my work online in a digital portfolio; motivate my classmates to do what it takes to become better designers, and overall, meet a circle of great friends who not only share a common interest with me, but have also been active in helping me to reach the position I’m at now.
Because of AIGA, I was able to land my first official graphic design job less than a week after I graduated from college! Thank you AIGA!
