The 2013 Charleston James Island Connector Run T-Shirt Design was created by Art Institute of Charleston student Raquel Shamah.
My name is Raquel Shamah. I'm 21 years old, born and raised in Myrtle Beach, SC. My interest in fine art pulled me to pursue a BA in Graphic Design at the Art Institute here in Charleston. I hope to work for a design firm that focuses on branding and marketing after I graduate. My interests are photography, fashion, music, and anything that relates to the term art!
