By YouLim Lee
Youlim Lee’s interest in design cannot be easily attributed to one dramatic life-changing moment. It is more akin to an evolutionary process, which began for her at age three. Youlim comes from a family who has studied in both the humanities and engineering, but her family all share an interest and expertise in the visual arts. She still remembers ‘creatively using’ her mom’s acrylic paints to finger-paint anything she could reach including furniture, walls and even her little sister! She looked forward to continuing her studies in the field of design at Pratt and making a career for herself as a magazine editor, graphic designer, or an artistic advisor within a corporate or business setting.
