After I graduate from Fox Chapel Area High School, I intend to attend college and graduate in 5 years with a Bachelor of Architecture. During these years, I hope to experience not only the academic side of architecture but also the humanitarian side. By leaving Pittsburgh, I hope to experience new areas of the country and the world, as architecture is truly worldly.
