Kristenelle Coronado, a senior at Ramapo College of New Jersey, had a big idea for a little car.
During an internship this past fall at Prestige MINI in Ramsey, she was assigned a major role in creating a graphic design to adorn a MINI Cooper. The dealership donated the car to be used as a raffle prize at Hackensack University Medical Center.
Coronado’s festive and brightly-colored design, promoted The Audrey Hepburn Children’s House. The house is a division of the department of pediatrics at The Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital, Hackensack University Medical Center and a state-designated regional diagnostic center for child abuse and neglect.
Coronado, who lives in Saddle Brook, is a communications arts major with a concentration in design and interactive media. She will graduate this May.
