Rachel Cho graduated from Louisiana State University with a B.F.A. in graphic design and then went on to work on her portfolio at ArtCenter College of Design, Pasadena, California. During her studies at ACCD she worked as a freelance designer and photographer. It was in her time there that she learned about social innovation and the practice of design for social change. After working on city-sponsored projects in Berlin, Santa Monica, and Long Beach, she started her hunt for a deeper understanding in social innovation and found SVA and the Masters program in Design for Social Innovation. Since enrollment, she continues her journey of discovery of a new way of thinking towards creating a change within herself to help solve problems of today’s society.
