About 

I have two undergraduate pre-professional degrees from two different colleges. I began my college career at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) in Ohio right out of high school. Upon completing my junior year I found out that this college was not accredited in architecture. Instantly I looked for ways to transfer but most schools said that I would have had to start from the beginning with not having an accredited degree. From there I decided my best option was to graduate from BGSU and apply to Kent State University (KSU) post undergraduate program.
What I took from BGSU was the experience of completed 3 internships. I got chances to work in office settings and jobs that range from 30 employees to 2 employees. It helped also tremendously when I decided to attend KSU because I was somewhat a step ahead of my classmates in knowledge and determination to get things done. It helped to sharpen my computer skills as well as my outlook and view on the field. Even though the KSU program allowed for me to transfer over my General Education courses I still had to retake all design studio over as well as tackle courses in systems, computer applications and theory to name a few. Most people wouldn’t have gone through such drastic measures to get an accredited degree but I take my love for architecture very seriously and most importantly this is my dream. After graduating from KSU I decided to focus on my life and try and gain more work experience. However I always knew I needed a professional degree which is why I decided to attend Boston Architectural College (BAC) accredited Distance MArch program in order to advance my career as a licensed architect. BAC program allows for their students to work full time while attending their program.
