Leann Pomponio, New Media Design and Imaging, Fourth Year
What is something that people love about you?
I have been told that my aura can light up a room. I bring happiness wherever I go and give off a positive energy. I am a naturally very happy and “bubbly” person. I laugh easy and often, I bring positive feedback and give people the benefit of the doubt. My glass is usually 3/4 of the way full; I sometimes go out of my way to make someone happy and I will drop almost anything to help out a friend, such as, dropping off friend(s) at the airport and the train station at 4am, on a Friday.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
I want to travel to the Motherland, Korea. I was born there but I am adopted. I want to return to see where I came from, there are many programs that I can sign up for where I can possibly see my orphanage and possibly birth parents, although, I am undecided if I want to meet them or not. I know Korea is beautiful, but I want to experience that first hand. I love the culture, music, and of course the food!
What are you most passionate about?
I am a designer, so therefore I am passionate about design. I always have been. I look back at all the majors I wanted to do, and a majority of them involved design. When I am aggravated and want to quit, I just remind myself I was born to design. I saved a fortune cookie fortune that said, “You make the world a beautiful place.” That’s what I want to do, I want to make pretty things and make the world beautiful. I am also very passionate about cooking, my first choice was to go to culinary school; there is nothing quite more wonderful than making something incredibly delicious and making someone very happy.
