    A big concern of my graduating class today is that we won’t be able to live in the metropolitan city of Atlanta that we’ve grown up in. The rising cost of living, particularly in metropolitan areas like Atlanta, looms large. The dynamic growth of cities often brings with it increased demand for housing, leading to soaring prices that outpaces income growth. This affordability crisis poses a significant challenge for many young people in our country who are struggling to get their lives started after college. With four years at Auburn obtaining a business administration degree and potentially more with post secondary options my aim is to focus on finance and management and take advantage of the construction management classes that Auburn has to offer in order to prepare myself for a career in real estate development. My goal for this career path is to specialize in creating mixed-use/live-work communities that will incorporate an affordable housing component. With pursuing a business administration degree with a focus on finance and management at Auburn University I will be taking a strategic approach to addressing this challenge. By combining my business skills with specialized knowledge in construction management, I will be positioning myself to play a pivotal role in real estate development, a field where creativity and problem-solving are essential. In cities like Atlanta, the infrastructure and space for a mixed-use/live-work community already exists in the vast number of shopping centers but lacks an affordable housing component. By integrating condos and apartments into these centers we are able to create a mixed use community. These communities offer a holistic approach to urban living, integrating residential, commercial, and recreational spaces to foster a sense of connectivity and community. By incorporating affordable housing options, I would not only be addressing the immediate needs of diverse income groups but also lay the foundation for long-term sustainability and inclusivity. My vision aligns with a growing trend in urban planning and development, where there's an increasing recognition of the importance of mixed-income communities in fostering economic diversity and reducing socioeconomic disparities. Through utilizing my expertise in finance and management, I will be able to navigate the complexities of real estate markets and investment strategies to make these projects financially viable. Ultimately, my career aspirations reflect a holistic approach to urban development that goes beyond mere profit-seeking to embrace social, economic, and environmental considerations. By striving to create vibrant and inclusive urban spaces where people can live, work, and thrive, I will not just be building buildings, but I’ll be shaping communities and transforming lives. My journey from Auburn University to the forefront of real estate development is assured to be both challenging and rewarding, but through passion, vision, and skills, I will be well-equipped to make a meaningful impact on my community.
