Architecture has the potential to change the world. It works with leaders, communities, and the environment, as well as other forms of theoretical knowledge to plan and develop changes that contribute to the future built environment. This is exactly the reason I have chosen to be an architect. I feel the impact of architecture is powerfully meaningful. The way architects, city planners, and developers perceive the world greatly impacts what it becomes. If there is such a thing as social justice through architecture, that is exactly where I want to be.
