Why did you choose SCAD?
I chose SCAD due to its outlook on architecture from an artistic perspective instead of the common technical and restrictive perception of this career. Furthermore, SCAD’s relative small size classes appealed to me as I would be able to address my professors in a more individualized manner. Finally, I took into account the factor of SCAD’s location in a small city, which I could easily get used to as an international student.
Why are you and Ambassador?
I became an Ambassador due to an invitation that I received upon acceptance to SCAD. After entering the program I realized that it was a great opportunity for me to get to know people outside my major and as a trigger for me to step out of my comfort zone to interact with others.
