Personal Statement

Hi, I am Sana and I'm an Architect by day working a 9 to 5 job in one of the largest housing communities of the world known as Bahria Town. When I'm not behind my desk , I am mostly found working for different brands , pulling the strings behind the scene to develop there personas and identities from scratch. I am also a part time cartoonist and my passion lies in comic books and graphic novel industry. My ultimate aim is to move towards the comic industry and bring this medium in not only architecture education but also in other notable academic platforms as well such Product designing, Software engineering etc. I am also a critique of architecture education and basic post colonial Diaspora architecture in the subcontinent region of Asia and have devoted some years of my life to write about them on online architecture forums. I have presented my work on many platforms including the international student forum of Architecture Heritage which was held in Istanbul Turkey. However, I have tried to work in several contrasting fields even at one point in service sector as i believe it has helped build a far more unique character and professional ethics which wouldn't have been possible in a constricted work experience.
