In the future, I hope that I can become a successful architect that can bridge the social gap between people of different backgrounds.

Why did you choose Cornell and AAP?

In addition to the reputation of Cornell AAP, Cornell's architecture program offers me the focus and preparation in this field of study that I cannot find in most other schools I've researched. Cornell also relates architecture with other fields such as history and physics. I am also extremely passionate about architecture, which is why I chose to apply to Cornell AAP.

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

Some of my interests are fencing, running (track and cross country), reading, and drawing.

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

In the future, I hope that I can become a successful architect that can bridge the social gap between people of different backgrounds. In the meantime, I hope that I can learn how to become an architect by applying the essential skills that I have learned at Cornell AAP.
