New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), Old Westbury, NY, US, Bachelors, Interior Design
During my years at NYIT, I had the opportunity to work in the Student Materials Library, where I gained valuable knowledge on a variety of materials and their uses and applications. I loved being involved activities throughout the campus, from being a member of the student committee in the IIDA student chapter, regularly attending architectural and design lectures, and even participating in the amazing Salone del Mobile Furniture Fair in Milan. These events and many more experiences at NYIT have all helped to shape my experience as a designer, and as a person.
