My name is Eve Barnofsky and I am a Junior at SUNY Plattsburgh. I was born and raised on Long Island and chose Plattsburgh becuase when I walked on campus I knew this is where I wanted to spend the next four years of my life. I first started out as a journalism major but soon realised that I loved public relations. As I continued on with my courses I felt as something was missing. I realized that that I had missed art. In high school I took a art class ever semester. I wondered how I could combine my love for design and public realtions. It then came to me that I could do graphic design and public relations. I am out-going and creative, what better way to do both then combine public realtions and graphic design.
I have always loved desingn. I come from a very creative family. My grandfather is a musican and my grandmother is an artist. My mother has always said I am a creative kid. When i was younger and do arts and crafts I always thought out how I was going to design. Whether it was a macaroni picture frame or putting stickers on my notebook. I was also always a very outgoing and an outspoken kid. Coming to SUNY Plattsburgh helped me realize my love for art and communication and being able to turn it into a career. This is how I discovered my love for public relations and graphic design.
For me beaing able to use both my design skills and communication skills in my profesional life is more then I can ask for. They tell you to love what you do and I love being creatvie and communicating .
