Candidate in 2-Year Master of Architecture degree program

Favorite thing about being at Georgia Tech: Forming part of a diverse scholar community that is eager to explore and participate in the innovation of our beloved discipline is among my favorite things at Georgia Tech. Additionally, the opportunities and facilities provided by the School of Architecture encourage students to engage in diverse fields within the architectural field, helping them to broaden and define their interests in the profession.  

Why did you decide to study architecture? During my high school years, I became interested in the harmonization of the arts and technology in the built environment. Being able to incorporate both history and science into my professional career encouraged me to study architecture. I have enjoyed every minute of my formation as an architect, as it has served me as a tool to understand not only buildings and urban planning but society as well. 

Student organizations: Equity in Architecture (EQiA), American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) and Latino Organization of Graduate Students (LOGRAS)
