My dream is to become a designer with a purpose. During my five years in university, I have come to learn of the importance of design and space and how much impact it can have in a community. As I honed my skills for architectural design and people’s experiences, I have realized my desire to pursue a career where I can take part in detailed systems thinking and design research through contexts and users to produce designs that can help make change.
