As a “first - gen” student and a girl growing up in a middle eastern household here in America, I’d have to pursue becoming a doctor, lawyer, or engineer when going to college. But withdrawing permanently being my passion, I knew I had to follow a career path where I could express my creativity and enjoy my workplace. Although it has been challenging and stressful majoring in interior design, I’m glad I pushed myself through all four years without giving up and proving everyone wrong that you can become successful in arts and design. It’s incredible how much I’ve learned through the program here at UNT and my time interning at Stal timber; I’m now excited to take these experiences with me and see where they will take my future self.
