From a very young age I had always dreamed of building and designing structures,
fantasylands and even silly gadgets. As an adult I still dream of such fantasies; just
in a more mature way. I have experienced life in an unconventional way and have
felt the many highs and lows of life’s obstacles. My goal in my career is to improve
the way of life for others in ways I wish someone had done for me. I have a strong
passion to improve upon ADA requirements and architecture. By merging design
with new accessibility features I know I can improve our society in ways that ADA
laws have not yet acknowledged. My life is dedicated to leading by example and
helping others with similar challenges realize that success is not unobtainable. Life
is what we choose to make it. Every individual has obstacles to overcome. Some
are more challenging than others. If I can lead my team in an office I can lead a
community by example for the thousands of people struggling the same way I did
but with no hope. I am an asset to any company and a charismatic positive
influence to my peers. I can offer leadership, teamwork, public verbal proficiency,
and a positive attitude on top of conventional architectural skills. I dream of
making a difference in the community. I’m ready to work; I’m ready to lead; and
I’m ready to succeed.
