Nina Renna holds a bachelor of science in Mathematics from the University of Pittsburgh, but deep down she always wanted to be a designer. She took the necessary steps to make that dream a reality when she enrolled in the Communication Design program at Northampton Community College, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Nina will graduate in spring 2019 with an Associate degree in Applied Science, after which she plans to seek employment and start her career in graphic design, with the ultimate goal of having a job she truly loves and making an impact in the design world.
Currently, Nina has a rather unique job at Coat of Chrome. She assists in the preparation and chroming of guitars, microphones, art work, and many other items, sometimes for celebrities.
In addition to being creative with the Adobe Suite, Nina enjoys painting, sewing, reading, baking, watching documentaries, and playing with her niece.
Her friends describe her as the person whom they can count on.
Nina was drawn to apply for Writing Wrongs 2018 for various reasons:
When I first heard about Writing Wrongs, I immediately wanted to be involved. It offers the opportunity for me, as a designer, to be a part of something that can really make a difference. I want to hear the stories of those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault because if they are brave enough to tell their stories then we should all be brave to stand up for everyone who has been affected by these issues. We live in a time where more and more people are finding the courage to speak up and I believe if we keep up the momentum we can truly make an impact and take more steps to ending domestic violence and sexual assault. I am truly grateful to play a part in this collaborative effort and at the end of this experience I hope to have to learned from and been inspired by the people and stories.
