Pacific Islander Affinity Logo Artist- Ana Bungag (She/Her, Fillipino- American):
I am Ana Bungag and my pronouns are she/her. I immigrated from the Philippines to the US when I was a teenager, but I just recently became a US citizen and so I now identify as Filipino-American. I graduated at North Seattle College with a bachelor’s degree in International Business and now I am studying Graphic Design at Seattle Central College.
How was your experience going to NSC?
For me, the classes that I took at NSC shaped me in the career path that I wanted to take. My Digital Arts class sparked my interest in becoming a graphic designer and digital artist. My classes in International Business helped me understand even more about the cultures and practices of people from different countries which I feel I should keep in mind when I am working or interacting with someone.
Right now, my art and designs are focused on my community, especially Asian/Pacific Americans. I want to help and show my support for them especially now with all the hardships they have to face since the beginning of the pandemic.
