Meet a 2021 Peer Mentor:

Hi everyone, my name is Zinna (she/her). I’m going into third-year Illustration at OCAD U. I’m from Korea, and my family moved to Canada in 2009. Currently I live in Toronto right by the school! This is my first-time peer mentoring and I’m very excited to meet the new students this upcoming year. So far, I’m really enjoying my time at OCAD U, learning a lot of new skills, meeting new people, and building connections. My goal in becoming a Peer Mentor is to help you have a good, easy and fun first year experience!

A bit about myself: I love working with a variety of mediums such as acrylic, gauche, pencil, charcoal, ink, and wood burning. Currently, I’m practicing on building my digital art skill with Photoshop, Illustrator, and Procreate! The last year or so has been difficult as I had to spend my whole second-year at home rather than being in class with my peers. But I adapted and looked in the positive direction to work on myself and manage my time. I like to look at the positive in tough situations and think of how I can work with what I have, making the best out of it! However, I really do look forward to the end of this pandemic so we are all back in school and maybe meet some of you in person!

If you like to talk to me about any question on my experience, curious with some of my work, or just looking to make friends, feel free to DM or follow me!
