Every day is exciting because you are challenged and learn something new. I feel grateful to be able to learn and practise something about which I am fascinated and passionate.

My goal is to work as a Landscape Architect as soon as I finish the MA course. Completing the course will ensure I have the necessary skills needed for a graduate position in a world-class firm. My dream is that my future career will enable me to be involved in large-scale projects all over the world.
