2018-19 Recipient: Tiah Northway
Tiah Northway was born and mostly raised in Lincoln, Nebraska. Having barely dipped her toes into various parts of the world, Tiah is inspired by stories from perspectives that are different from her own and the exploration of identity that is unique to every individual.
She has received her Associate’s of the Arts and is currently working towards her Bachelor’s of the Fine Arts in Graphic Design. She is twenty-five years old and has a six-year-old son. She works to teach him to recognize the finer details are what create the most extraordinary of experiences. By constantly reviewing this philosophy, Tiah strives to create the best designed experience in attempts to create more inclusive social conditions.
Tiah currently resides in Lincoln with hopes of attending grad school somewhere outside of Nebraska.
