"At the end of my Freshman year is when I made that fateful decision to become a graphic designer at Ka Leo. Three years later, I can say with certainty that I made the right choice. Ka Leo has provided me with countless opportunities to improve my design skills and work with businesses both local and national to create advertising campaigns. The experience you can gain here is invaluable, allowing you to work with real clients in a real-world context. In addition, I was also able to use this position as an internship for class credit. Outside of work and school the design skills that I have honed at Ka Leo has allowed me to do freelance design for clients, such as a local politician."
