Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY, US, Masters, Master of Science Interior Design

While my concentration was Interior Architecture, I focused on diversifying my skills well beyond the traditional boundaries of Interiors and took classes in Art and History, HIstoric Preservation, Industrial Design and Graphic Design.

During my final year I also studied Exhibition Design and got an opportunity to learn from various artists and professionals from Ralph Appelbaum Associates. I was also a part of the finalist team for a National Competition "Parks for People" which focused on Reimagining National Parks of America.

My journey at Pratt was a steep learning curve and I learnt a lot from my professors, crits and peers alike. I graduated with honors and also won the "Excellence for Academic Achievements Award 2012", however I believe what I really took from my journey here is the ability to THINK and QUESTION.
