About 

An ambitious, fourth-year student at Northeastern University with a passion for urban design, sustainability & interior architecture. 

My international travel over the years has given me a global perspective on the world, including exposure to different people, cultures, and architectural elements in various contexts. As the majority of the world population now lives in urban centers, I hope to use my experiences, architectural education, and urban studies education to foster a more sustainable, equitable, and inspiring built environment.
