What inspired you to want a life in Architecture and the creative industries?
I have always been passionate about the creative industries and architecture. dancing and drawing from a young age and understanding my own pedagogical behaviour in dance such as a tiny tantrum phenomena through expressive dramatic arts and how these behaviours are taught by teachers to develop my life of an architect in structured environments. my decisions, learning and educating and development thus for in my journey are inspired from my own experiences and influences in life.
Who inspired you in finding your path to Architecture and the creative industries?
My inspiration and finding a path in architecture and the creative industries stemmed from my uncle joe who died of cancer, Stephen Hawking and my first ever dance teacher, Gerard walls. enrolling in maria Lehmans sensory architect academy pushed me in direction of the architecture journey in realising my potential to become a change maker.
How you unlock obstacles and overcome bias in your work?
Unlocking obstacles in my work and overcoming bias i try to learn from experience change up my learning disciplines and balance my requirements of well being. by delving into my past as a toolbox to learn for the future, however i know teamwork makes the dream work!!
From my experience in home grown plus and RIBA foundation i worked from home. for myself to become a grown woman i would need to step into the work pace to understand the change needed in the working environment.
