First and foremost, thank you for gliding by, I appreciate it.
My name is Jennise. I am a 21 year old girl who is in her third year of university, I am also a writer of young adult books. Graphic Designing has been a passion for a very long time, almost 6-7 years, and has been something that has been gradually building up. I am a self taught designer, and that is something else I take pride in, so much so, that now I find myself passionate to teach other people and help beginners who are now what I once was, out as much as I can, so that they are able to smooth sail past what took me a lot of time to master.
