Hometown: Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico

Why did you choose to study product design?
I love the idea that I can create everything and anything but most importantly that I can express my style in any design I make. I have always drawn to home goods ever since I was little.
What makes earning a degree at NewSchool special?

Earning a bachelor’s degree at NewSchool will be really special because I know I will have the right experience and knowledge to become a successful designer. Also, our teachers are a great example to follow.

What has been your favorite thing about attending NewSchool?
The projects I have made and how much I learned in technique.
What are your career goals after you graduate?

After I graduate I will do a master’s or go directly to work for a company for about a year and finally having my own company of high-quality home goods.

What would people be surprised to learn about you?

How persistent I can be.

What advice do you have for incoming students?

It’s okay not to know everything just be open to learn and always be curious.

Why should a prospective student choose NewSchool?

At NewSchool, we have a great community that will encourage you and who will support you always.

We had to design a drink brand for our final project. It’s a golden milk latte that’s good for you but not only that, it’s a fun and happy brand.
