How has it been adapting to WHSAD? How different was it from last year?
I am new to both WHSAD and to New York so everything has been different from last year, including the environment and the teaching ways, but WHSAD has made it very easy for me to adapt to the change.
How do you feel about this environment? How has the experience with students and teachers been?
I have always wanted to live in New York because I loved how fun it looked on the internet. I also knew the education system is better, and everything is more accessible, so for me this environment is new in a good way.
I like all the teachers, they’re all very helpful and make it very easy for me to catch up to the things I haven’t learned before.
The students have been nice, and I have been able to find a friend who I enjoy hanging out with.
Why did you choose WHSAD?
I chose WHSAD because I have wanted to be an architect from childhood, mostly because my dad is one. When I moved to New York and found out there was a school specifically for architecture and design in my neighborhood, I instantly wanted to go. WHSAD gives you so many opportunities for college and for your future in general, especially if you know you’re going for design in the future like me.
Do you have any projects you’re currently working on?
I’m not working on any projects at the moment but I’m looking forward to it.
Do you have any future projects in mind?
I’m going to be working on the Urban Archive project with Kevin Garcia. More to come on that in a few weeks.
What is a goal that you hope to achieve by the end of this year at WHSAD?
“I hope to successfully learn how to use AutoCAD and Maya.”
