Future career aspirations: I see myself working to solve urban design issues in the face of climate change. My career goals include project-based collaboration to create a sustainable future.
Top 3 goals for your time abroad: 1. My first goal is to experience how another country's urban spaces respond to climate change. 2. Experience local involvement in urban development. I am incredibly curious to see how Spain in particular combats issues of gentrification and short-term building. 3. I am also aiming to immerse myself as much as possible in the community. I want to experience how people in another culture balance leisure and work.
