Annie: Graphics Design Intern
Annie just recently graduated from Peace College with a major in Graphic Design and a minor (almost a major) in Spanish. Even though Annie is full Vietnamese, culturally, she considers herself a third Korean, a third Mexican and a third Spanish. This explains why you will find Annie either wandering around Mexican and Korean stores or on the dance floor practicing salsa. Food is one of Annie’s greatest passions; she loves cooking for other people and trying new foods, but hates eating her own food. In her spare time, (when not designing) Annie takes care of her culinary herb plants and two orchids.
