Why did you choose Cornell and AAP?

I chose Cornell and AAP for the experience it gives specifically to architecture students. The school's various facilities show me that I will have a lot of opportunities to express how I use space in many different ways, using many different materials.

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

Painting, Drawing, Graphic Design, Coding, Guitar, Singing, Baking, Cooking

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

I hope to build a strong network of friends, including my classmates, teachers, and whoever I happen to find myself working with, in or out of school. I hope to use these connections to build spaces that allow more people to live in a dignified environment, discourage the exploitation of labor through design, and make the built environment as a whole more equitable. I hope I will be able to re-define how people conventionally use space in order to build a world where people can live more equitably.
