"Unleashing my creativity while at Curiosity Advertising for co-op was like adding the perfect color to a blank canvas. Thanks to DAAP's Co-op Program, I turned classroom skills into real-world designs, making waves as a graphic designer. With each pixel and pen stroke, I painted my path to success, transforming theory into captivating visuals."
