About 

During my four years of undergraduate study in Landscape Design at the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts inTianjin, China, I explored project designs at various scales in architecture, landscape, and urban design. My interest in focusing on the built object led me to SCI-Arc. I thrived in the SCI-Arc environment that expected excellence, persistence, and most importantly teamwork. My work ethic was rewarded with recognition both of my undergraduate work in China and most recently my SCI-Arc Thesis project.
