April Gaddis

Newtown, CT, US



All my life I have been building and designing, (e.g. building structures out of blocks, creating jewelry out of metals, designing and sewing my own prom dress) but it took only one month of college classes for me to know that I found my passion for Architecture. I am passionate about the work, the designing, the multi-thinking, and all my new creative experiences.

It is because of this passion that I am seeking the opportunity to apply the absorbed knowledge to realistic applications.
