Born in Houston to Thai and Chilean immigrants and raised in the most ethnically diverse county in the U.S., Fort Bend, Isabella considers herself a Global citizen. Since childhood, she’s participated wholeheartedly in sustainability efforts, photography, and the visual arts. In adulthood, she chose to study graphic design. She graduated from the University of Houston in May of 2018 with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts and two minors while working in the design and green industries.
After graduating, Isabella enrolled in the College of Creative Studies for an accelerated graduate semester in The Hague, Netherlands. To conclude the program, she worked with her peers to organize a retrospective exhibition, the second she had organized that year.

The following year, her senior class project Encounter: Meeting Points Along Buffalo Bayou received The Global SEGD honor award—the only student project to win alongside prestigious design studios such as Pentagram. Read about the project here.

In her personal life, Isabella studies plants and topics of the climate change discussion. While working for the plant nursery Enchanted Gardens, she inspired and worked with the administration to reduce plastic waste. Together, they reformed the drinking water distribution and employee kitchen. Read her article on the company’s online journal
