Meet our advisors - Daliya Jokondo

Daliya is a multimedia artist who earned their B.F.A. in Painting and Drawing from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, and their M.F.A. at Virginia Commonwealth University with a focus on Painting. As an artist, they are committed to the use of technology to make the visual arts more accessible. Their career path has included museum work (making visitor experiences more culturally inclusive and accessible), teaching an arts-integrated curriculum to school aged students, and using art for storytelling within collaborative spaces and as a therapeutic tool to navigate traumatic experiences. Daliya loves cats (has two!), enjoys cooking, lounging, books, live music, horror films, and is partially attached to their Nintendo Switch. Their current obsession is Stardew Valley (Expanded!) and is perpetually adding modifications.
