Creativity is vital, but no architects can success without passion. I feel lucky because it was passion and love for architecture that had constantly driven me to do the best I could out of the architecture design projects in the first few years of my university study; that encouraged me to participate in various contests and competitions to foster my professionalism and most importantly that had strengthened my determination to further my career in the exciting field of architecture.
