My name is Sabrina Valdes, and I recently graduated from Parsons School of Design with a BFA in interior design and a minor in psychology. Having attended a prestigious art high school as well, I believe that my extensive background in the fine arts and psychology help me bring something to the table when designing objects and spaces, and I envision myself one day working across various disciplines and mediums. I flourish in collaborative environments and have always thoroughly enjoyed the early conceptual stages of the projects I've worked on - which has led to my being presented Parson's Iterative Process Award for my recent capstone project. Ultimately, my goal is to always ensure that our lived human experiences are at the forefront of my mind when delving into a project.
