WHAT IS THE VALUE OF AIA TO YOU?
AIA Seattle staff has always been helpful, supportive, and encouraging. Their commitment to welcoming any question, curiosity, or request, and ensuring a follow-up with information has been unprecedented, which has elevated my experience as an AIA Seattle member. I enjoy the variety of continuing education opportunities the chapter has been offering.
WHAT RELATIONSHIPS HAVE YOU CREATED?
Joining AIA, and specifically becoming an active member in one of its committees has been a cornerstone of my career. This became evident through the strong relationships I had the opportunity to forge with my peers- both in architecture and other allied professions. In addition, I was also fortunate to cross paths with many architects with established careers in our city who were excited to mentor me, help me broaden my professional network, as well as cheer me on as my career started progressing.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TODAY?
What inspired me today was seeing old, and meeting new friends, great conversation, lots of laughs, and a 99% edible garden in the middle of the city.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SEATTLE-AREA STRUCTURE?
Space Needle- as cheesy as it may sound 🙂 Seeing it makes me feel at home, whether I’m coming back to Seattle from afar, during my morning coffee or daily walks. It embodies both historic and futuristic elements, making it timeless.
