Even though we’ve been touting our fantastic Kollaboration New York finalists in recent weeks, we wanted to take this opportunity to also showcase some of our own very talented staff members as well. And who better to feature than Donna Yee, this year’s Design Associate?
The Newton, MA native is not only skilled in graphic design and all things on the Interwebs (she’s a web applications developer at Next Jump), she’s also an amazing singer as well, having taken part in her high school choir.
When she headed off to college, however, her circles only expanded.
“In high school, it always felt like I had two friend groups — people who I did choir with, who were mostly my non-Asian friends, and then my Asian friends. There was no overlap,” she said. “But I think the lines blurred when I got past high school — it was just the circumstances.”
Read on to learn more about Donna’s multi-lingual skills, which musical group first got her hooked into Kollab, and where she wants to see the org at the end of it all.
