“I would love to act as a bridge in promoting the “right” graduate school design program values I’ve believed in, creative thinking I’ve appreciated, reflections I’ve had and all the wonderful things I’ve experienced to Asia. I believe after completing graduate school, I will apply my creative capabilities in projects that can make real social impacts. However small the influence may be, the projects are launched to make people’s lives better and help build a greater society through design.
