Arbona said, “[AFH] gave me a purpose. It gave me a space to learn and contribute and become a creative collaborator, and a leader.”

“I felt comfortable doing so because I had the confidence from AFH to talk about my work and defend those risks,” she said.

All the while, Arbona continued to work as a Mentor in the Graphic Design Studio. Two years ago, she became the manager of the studio.
