Kristine Garcia


Kristine Garcia was born in the Philippines and migrated to Columbia, MD when she was 7. In high school, her talent started to blossom and receive recognition. Currently, she is a senior at Philadelphia University pursuing a B.S. degree in Graphic Design Communication. Since the finger painting and hopscotch days, Kristine has enjoyed bringing her creativity to life. While growing up she loved drawing, painting, even sculpting things out of clay. Kristine’s passion drives her to be the best she can be. She’s always eager to learn more so she can become better. Aside from design, she enjoys taking part in community service. Making a difference and impacting the lives of others is something she holds dear. After graduation from PhilaU, Kristine hopes to land a job working with people who share the same excitement for design as she does.
