Why did you chose to study Residential Interior Design?

I love doing anything creative, and I love helping people. One of the things I love most about Interior Design is solving problems for people and making their lives easier and more comfortable, through physical pieces and aesthetic tastes. Interior Design also becomes such a personal experience when designing someone's home. The personal aspect really attracted me, because I have the opportunity to influence a person's daily life for the better.

Tell us about your NKBA student competition experience & award.

The Blog Like A Pro scholarship stood out to me because it sounded like a fun thing I could do. I didn’t take it too seriously, and just decided to make quick, fun, casual blog posts- the kind that I would like to read most. Apparently the NKBA liked them too because I won the student blogger competition!
