Augusta,Georgia

I look forward to further developing my passion for architecture through Cornell's intense curriculum and immersive culture.

Why did you choose Cornell and AAP?

Cornell's relatively close proximity to New York City affords me greater opportunities to intern for some of the country's top architecture firms in a city that never stops growing. Also, Cornell's location in Ithaca —an extremely progressive town — allows me to sort of escape the intensity of the racial prejudices in the South along with its horrible summers.

What are your extracurricular interests and how have you incorporated them into your college life?

I play golf, piano, guitar, enjoy outdoor activities, thrifting, meditation, live music, and fashion.

What do you hope to accomplish during your time at AAP and after graduation?

I look forward to further developing my passion for architecture through Cornell's intense curriculum and immersive culture.
