As a young girl I have always know who and what I want to be. For years I have let the belief and fear of those around me propel me to be something I know I am not meant to be. Something that happens to many young people my age. Of recent the voice of that young 5 year old girl whose eyes brighten up when conversations of architecture come to play has become to defining to sound out.
The art of translating one’s vision, belief and values into a sketches that later become houses that people call home has always struck a chord in my heart. Architecture is not only about understanding the building and its functionality but it’s also about how the architect translates the work and hand, subsequently leaving a piece of themselves in every design they do. It is hence not just a career but also a way of life. It compels one to intertwine their vision with that of the client not forget the environment at hand. Most ancient Greek building that have made their mark in architectural history depict such.
Education and Professional Goals
I completed my undergraduate studies in Environmental Science from Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University in Japan (Beppu-Shi, Oita-Ken). Having studied and lived in a foreign country awarded me the opportunity to be exposed to several cultural diversities hence enabling me to understand and work well with other people. It was at this university that I managed to graduate with an outstanding thesis award. This was attained through hard work and determination.
Like many young people in my country financing a degree is a challenge. My father has recently retired and unfortunately is not receiving any form of remuneration from his previous employer. This has made things a bit challenging as my mother is the only breadwinner. I have two younger brother who are currently in university (sponsored by the Government)
Your financial assistance will be greatly appreciated as it would award me the opportunity to live out an age long dream.
