When I was really young I lived in Berrien Springs and I remember hanging out in the architecture building. My mom worked in the library while she went to school here for nursing. She would bring me in while she worked if I had nothing else to do. I would walk around the library and look at all of the models and the interesting books. I loved looking into the studio to see what was going on. After spending time in the building I knew I wanted to become an architect. When I moved away the interest in architecture still followed me. I continued to have a love for models and I was always interested in the layout of buildings.
Coming here to Andrews University School of Architecture is more than just coming to school, it is also coming home. I’ve always felt at place here and ready to receive the knowledge that is provided. I am eagerly awaiting the journey I have in front of me. I hope to find a way through the good times and the bad. It’s awesome to think that something I could do would one day inspire someone to look into becoming an architect
