Graphic Design

Based in Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania

Hello! I’m Kyerra Kuntz and I am from the Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania. I am a senior, college student attending Liberty University to receive a bachelor’s degree in Graphic and Studio Arts: Graphic Design. I am projected to graduate in the Spring of 2022 and plan to follow a design career wherever that takes me. I chose to intern at Understanding in Conflict because of the type of the work they do and the opportunities they offer me to strengthen myself as a graphic designer. I look forward to working alongside the other interns and staff for this organization!
