Artifacts

These are things that I’ve experienced or accumulated through my time at the University of Washington that have shaped my experiences. Without these artifacts, I would not be who I am today.

Study Abroad,

Dals Långed, Sweden

It was during this study abroad that I was able to experience design and Landscape Architecture for the first time. I was able to learn about myself and my interests, as well as experience true autonomy over the summer. The gallery above is a combination of places I’ve seen, people I’ve met and experiences I will never forget.

Electromagnetic Waves

Physics Coursework

Before joining CEP, I was an intended physics major. The technical world was completely new to me and I was amazed by all that it has to offer. A specific moment that defined my love for learning happened in a demonstration during PHYS 122, Electromagnetism. We saw a lightbulb turn on without being plugged into a power source. The bulb was drawing from current in the magnetic field that was active due to a Tesla coil. It was during this moment I realized the natural world had so much more to offer and that real magic was not as far away as one would think.

S.W.B.E

(the worst band you’ll ever see live)

I joined SWBE before I was accepted to the University of Washington. The contrast that it held for me in regards to my lifestyle and the choices I made in and out of school helped keep me grounded and constantly reminded me why I decided to pursue higher education. Playing music and having fun with friends was a way to take a break from academia and spend time with people who were affected by changes happening in their neighborhoods. The people I interact with when I play music are part of the reason I feel strongly about Urban Planning and ensuring that the future of cities should be in the hands of those who plan with intention and genuinely good interests at heart.

L ARCH 300

My first experience with intentional design

This course was my first autonomous exposure to landscape architecture. I was able to work on projects individually and experience the feeling of problem solving and designing in my own style, which had not been the case in Sweden. The projects I worked on in this course were purely my own and it was very empowering to be able to exercise creative solutions to the tasks assigned.
