I talked myself out of pursuing a career as an interior designer when I was an undergraduate but now I'm going back to school to make that dream a reality. I'm passionate about functional design and creating a relaxing living space to promote mindfulness, well-being, and reduced stress. I am a great candidate because I work hard and apply myself at school. I am a life-long learner and am especially excited by the opportunity that going back to school allows (minus the debt!). My mother didn't finish high school and my father never went to college; it is an exciting feeling to see how proud my parents are of my passion for learning.
