Jojo West


My name is Jojo West and I am a senior in the BFA Design and Visual Communications program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. My strong design skills, creative thinking and fun personality has brought great achievement in my academic and professional career. With the current internships that I have, I’m learning new, productive procedures and professional practices every day that I bring to my design courses along with skills I already had and developed over the years. Public speaking, progressive thinking, being a timely multi-tasker and detail-oriented are traits that I take pride in and work to improve consistently. Although I am an artist first, I take my academics earnestly and managed to excel in my courses; I made the Dean’s Honors List for Spring 2019 and plan to graduate with honors in the Spring 2020 class of UWM. I have many life and career goals, but I understand that everything comes with time, and having patience and perseverance are my keys to managing life so that I can handle any obstacle that comes my way.
