Soe Yu Nwe, a Myanmar-born ceramic artist who received her M.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design after receiving her bachelor's degree from Albion College, is featured in Forbes' 30 Under 30 – Art & Style 2019. Since graduating from Albion just five years ago, her works already have been displayed in several U.S. cities as well as in China, the Philippines, Taiwan and Australia.
