Jennifer (Ngai) Hom (1987) began life as a Chinese American girl in suburban long island, New York. As a minority with few friends, she found happiness in drawing fairies, unicorns, magical flying unicorns, princesses, and flowers. With the help of a terribly optimistic mother, she used her countless drawings of magical beings to enroll at the Rhode Island School of Design. Now graduated with a BFA in illustration, she hopes to find a home with climate control and a non-communal bathroom. She is still Chinese American, but wants to be a Broadway star.
