My Journey After Graduation from TOA: Drawing Dreams Being Real
Last October, Kathrin Honesta, a TOA alumist, came to campus and shared stories about her career after graduation. Kathrin's dream came true through drawing.
Kathrin hopes that her experience will be able to help the students, “…the only way to do great work is to love what you do”.
The One Academy is known for its Masters Train Masters teaching philosophy that constantly encourages external mentorships by experts in their respective fields. Kathrin Honesta had attended many of the talks by professionals when she was still studying here. But this time, she is one of them, being invited to deliver a sharing to her juniors, making it a surreal experience for her.
Kathrin is an illustrator and graphic designer based in Jakarta, Indonesia. After graduating in 2014, she was hired by Leo Burnett, one of the top advertising agencies in Kuala Lumpur, due to her impressive portfolio The Undaunted Dandelion, an illustrative story book about her own journey, which she developed under the guidance of Debbie Chin, Deputy Head of Advertising & Graphic Design.
