I make people laugh without intending to. I used to think I was such a serious person.
The first two years of the architecture program was enticing to me so I could build a foundation in architecture. Other schools require students to submit a portfolio with their college application, and that was hard for me to create since I went to a scientific high school. I was also drawn to studying architecture in New York City. NYIT's architecture program focuses on NYC through projects that relate to sites in the city. I was always looking forward to understand the city at a deeper level and now I am happy to say that I am able to do this everyday.
Favorite NYIT Experience
I am currently a Teacher's Assistant for Design Fundamentals II. By teaching students in a class I have already completed, I can guide them to better choices in their projects.
In addition to being a TA and a student ambassador, I am a member of American Institute of Architects (AIA) and will be on the executive board next year. I practice kickboxing and yoga at the YMCA. During the summer, I volunteer at an organization called “Volunteer in Dubai.”As a team, we helped the community with city events, animal rescue, and take care of the beach.
My NYIT is a family consisting of different cultures and interests. It helps me learn about the world and also develop my own interests. With the help of other students and my professors, I will be able to achieve my goals and be a proud graduate of NYIT.
I am an artist, but I also want to become a great leader through public speaking and managing projects. Through many opportunities at NYIT, I am able to improve my leadership and communication skills. An architect should be able to communicate well and sell ideas to client, so I am on the right path to becoming a successful architect.
