A Designer with Determination

Meet Chaella Dent, a graphic design student at John Tyler Community College. This spring, Chaella completed an internship at United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg to support Workforce Partnership Team activities.

Chaella earned the position by winning a logo design contest organized through the Community College Workforce Alliance, a member of the Workforce Partnership Team. Her winning logo design can be seen on all Workforce Partnership Team materials.

During her internship, Chaella scaled her initial design concept into a full suite of Workforce Partnership Team materials, giving her valuable real-world experience she will leverage when she graduates in 2021. She also completed design projects for other members of the Workforce Partnership Team including JobsRVA and J&G Workforce Development Services, LLC.
