 I am now pursuing my master degree at the University of Southern California and hold a Bachelor of Environmental Design which provide me with skills and knowledge in landscape architecture and interior design. With my comprehensive experience in landscape design, coupled with my enthusiasm and dedication to achieving success, I believe I could swiftly surpass your expectations for fulltime position in landscape architecture design.

I have previously completed summer internships in dwg. Through this experience, working on professional software and putting knowledge into real-world practice, I have gained more essential practical skills such as completing construction sheets in AutoCAD, composing presentation documents in Indesign and producing digital models in Sketchup and Lumion.

In my previous experience of learning landscape architecture, I used to make small scale projects, like the program in my portfolio called Majiagou River Waterfront device. During my master learning process, I have learned more academic knowledge about how to deal with urbanism and large scale design. Not only using computer-aided design software, but I am also talented in hand drawing which can make my idea and perspective directly to be understood and explained.

Furthermore, I have learned landscape architecture construction, and it will become a bridge to connect professional knowledge with real-world practice easily.
