My passion in architecture is to design unique spaces for individuals, but also design functional public spaces for the communities. I believe that design is the link between people and spaces because design integrates, transforms, and improves the lives of people. I want people to enjoy their spaces within the city they live in. I want to apply my skills in design and technology at a firm where I can grow and learn from work experience.
