Communication Design with a concentration in Business Management, 2007-2008
"It's very surprising to me that during my tenure at Carnegie Mellon, I have increasingly grown to love and enjoy what this campus has to offer. There has never been a moment where I can truly say to myself, 'Okay, that's it, that's all I can do here.' I want to enable that inspiration in others by providing them with the tools they need to stay active in the campus community."
During her time at Carnegie Mellon, Alicia's academic career encompassed a Communication Design BFA with a concentration in Business Management.
