I really enjoy working as an architectural designer. Knowing that I am able to create unique shelters for clients, changing a part of the world, making the earth greener, and sustaining the environment makes me feel accomplished.

When I am set on one goal, I am willing to work hard until this goal is accomplished. I never had a thought of quitting even when there is a lot of obstacles that I need to pass through. I am considered to be a hardworking person and a quick learner that never quits till the end.

I really enjoy learning and exploring new things and opportunities, and would apply these new skill sets into my designs to make things more interesting.
