I study architecture because I can make creative decisions as an architect, which have positive effects on many people during their daily lives.

I am highly creative but also interested in technology. In particular, I like the fact that we learn a lot about our craft at the beginning of our studies – that is, how to draw, model and build things. As an architect, I want to affect peoples’ lives in the future, and hopefully in a positive way!
