Natasha Brasnett has always considered herself as being a science nerd. She completed her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Victoria with a Major in Biology and a Minor in Coastal Studies. While she loves learning about the ocean and environmental issues, she could not reconcile herself to working within this field. Having grown up dabbling in the arts (photography, music and poetry), finding expression through art was always a hobby of hers. She stumbled upon the Langara Publishing Diploma and immediately knew that this was the missing piece she needed. Being immersed in the world of design has reignited her passion for creativity. Just as she stumbled into the program, she fell face-first on the first day of class in front of her new peers—recovering physically but never emotionally.
