I am an architecture student recently graduated with a master degree of Architecture in Washington University of St Louis. Your job posting indicated that looking for an individual that is self-motivated and willing to learn, which describes me.  

I would like to talk about myself in two small stores. In the last year of the my undergraduate, I have a studio studied about wind environment simulation. We need to learn how to use the software in a week. In that week, I learned how to use that software, and taught my teammates how to use it, and also, I learned another software that has better simulation accuracy by myself. 
The second story is last semester, we had a thesis course named design thinking. My topic is about redefining public space. I got my idea from a photo of sienna piazza. When I showed that image to my professor, he said it is too normal to talk about public space. But I said, I am not talking about the public space that these architecture facades enclosed, I am talking about the space that people could hear the bell ringing. That is a new kind of public space. My professor was impressed by this creative thinking. And I got a graduation with honor by this thesis and the design later. 

These two stories tell that I am a good learner and a creative thinker. And I think this is the individual that your team would like to choose.

In addition to this experience, I got used to a tight-knit and fast-paced team during my summer internship in KENGO KUMA AND ASSOCIATES in 2017. During that summer, my rendering works for the hotel design project were praised by both of the project manager and the clients.

Besides, I have expertise in:
 - Solid knowledge of architecture design
 - 7 years+ experience of 3D modeling and architecture drawings
 - Programming, UI /Web design and data analysis skills
 - Problem-solving, task-management and communication skills.
