About 

I am an energetic and enthusiastic young woman who completed the Master of Architecture program in June (2015) at the Hong Kong University and will officially graduate after the graduation ceremony in December. I obtained my Bachelor of Environmental Design in May, 2013 at the University of Manitoba.

I am inspired by architecture and have planned my long term career goal to be an architect.

I am interested in exploring architecture as an art, technology, environmental agent and a medium to navigate the richness and diversity of the architectural practise. I embrace the idea that architecture embodies and engages our most fundamental desires and aspirations. I believe that architecture has the potential to influence, and mediate political and cultural acts as well as translate those thoughts into the built environment. I welcome the opportunity to further my education and continue to find creative ways to look at architecture.

Canadian Merit Scholarship Foundation (Loran Award)- Semi Finalist, Other

Every year, the Loran Scholars Foundation invests in exceptional young Canadians who demonstrate character, service and leadership. We look for qualities that a transcript alone cannot show: personal integrity and character; commitment to service and an entrepreneurial spirit; breadth in academic and extra-curricular interests; strongly developed inner-directedness; and outstanding overall potential for leadership. Through the country’s most rigorous and personalized selection process, which includes interviews at the regional and national level, we select the top 30 of approximately 3,600 applicants as Loran Scholars.

Each Loran Scholar receives an award valued at up to $100,000 for their undergraduate studies. For four years, they receive the mentorship, financial independence and opportunities to seek out how they can most effectively contribute to society. Graduating scholars join a network of nearly 400 alumni who support each other as they take on leadership responsibilities beyond their years in business, public policy, medicine, law, academia, the arts and many other disciplines.
