I am a Graduate Student of Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI Arc) pursuing my Masters in Architecture (graduating in September 2019), interested in designing enriching environments for the community through carefully curated design. I am actively looking for opportunities as a Junior Architectural Designer to learn to apply the concepts and learning I have been exposed to throughout my undergraduate and graduate studies in a professional architectural firm, work on sustainable design projects that are socially and culturally relevant, to implement my current knowledge as well as gain new insights in this field and to step out of my comfort zone and continually challenge myself while I learn from my peers.
