My project embodies my journey as a designer, and my growing passion for my culture. Being an international student and having the hardship of being far from home, I developed a deeper appreciation for my own heritage and using design as a method of representation and storytelling. Han Cha reflects the theme of nostalgia through my experiences of having tea with my family, the preparation of tea in my household, and the aroma that lingers with this fond memory. I chose to portray a personal connection with my project to challenge the line between the evolution of traditions in a different cultural setting and the value of representation in the design world.
