I would like to work with communities to better their quality of living. I am interested in working with people to find what best suits their society to create a vernacular infrastructure that offers the most functional and usable neighborhood in which to live. I want to go beyond creating space based on global societal norms and create a sense of place in which the people see themselves in their local structure. This can be achieved not only through the physical representation of their surroundings but also through the economic and political surroundings of their local environment.
My ideal job would be one where I can fuse the physical environment with the culture of the people to create an engaging neighborhood where people are physically, emotionally, and mentally equipped. I would like to use my place knowledge from landscape architecture to further my participation and involvement in public affairs and international development.
