I am currently seeking a BA in Visual Communication Design (VCD), accompanied with minors, in African Studies and Race and Cultural Studies at Eastern Washington University (EWU). I have learned skills from drafting proposals, contracts, and bids for my family's landscaping and irrigation business. I am a currently a student-employee for Housing and residential Life at EWU. These experiences have allowed me to develop communication skills necessary when working with customers. I am readily willing to help my peers in and outside the classroom, especially when it inspires pieces in my art work. I never heard or taken a course in technical communication and I am curious how I will be able to implement the skills I will learn throughout the IFIXIT project as well as in future courses and career. I am excited to see how this project will give back to community, and its impact on people able to repair items themselves and how this will develop various skills that can cross into all intended degree paths and careers.
