Tell us about yourself:

I’m a full-time graphic designer for a Washington D.C.-based digital marketing agency. I also freelance on the side, taking on design clients from all industries to create print and digital assets, and I own Resumes By Neesha, where I provide professionals from all over the country with a variety of career-consulting services.

In addition to working full time and freelancing, I serve on the board as Vice President of Operations/President-Elect for AIGA KC. I’m passionate about connecting with local creatives, developing our community and creating opportunities for us to expand professionally and personally.

What is the inspiration behind your poster design?

With my interpretation of, ‘We Are Divine,’ I immediately thought of how I believe God dwells within me, and the blessings that come from accessing and making space for my inner divine. This phrase made me think about my spiritual journey and how healing has become such a priority in my life. I think about how powerful it is that once we make space for healing and the divine within ourselves, we have the ability to guide and walk alongside our brothers and sisters on their healing journeys and help them access their own inner divine. I strongly believe in collective healing, and I wanted to show how the divine plays a role in that with this poster design.

Why do you love being creative?

I’ve always been a creative. Ever since I was little, I’ve found immense joy from making something out of nothing. I believe that art and design have the power to transform lives, and it’s a huge blessing to be able to play a role and have purpose in something that comes so natural to me.
