About 

• My years of academic study and working experience have laid a foundation of expertise and taught me the importance of time management. The work has also strengthened my stress resistance and problem solving skills.

• With solid architectural knowledge, well-versed in 3D software, hands-on design experiences, a strong sense of responsibility, and eager anticipation, I am well prepared to cope with the challenges.
