"For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others."- Nelson Mandela
Architecture, to me, is humanity's imitation of nature. Nature provides nourishment, shade, and shelter. Its inner-workings are intricate, yet so simple in holistic idea. The gifts of nature sustain us, comfort us, and protect us. Architecture is a gift as well. Its elements should uniquely marry, and be carefully selected for the Receiver.
Architecture is also a path. It has brought me much fortune in growing into my place in the world, and influences how I can give back, how I can enhance the freedoms of others. I am cultivating my knowledge & passion within the profession to become a model, resource, and philanthropist in the field.
