How do you engage with your community?
Interact and communicate with others with a smile 🙂

What project are you most proud of?
My last studio project at CU Denver. It was a design-build project where I designed and then built my design. The most important thing is that I collected great memories with my team and instructor. I will always remember these unforgettable memories.

What are you reading/watching/doing/listening to right now that is inspiring your work?
I LOVE old songs (French, English, Arabic), but I feel a good melody can catch me whatever the kind is!

What is your favorite building or who is your favorite architect and why?
The Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba—also known as the Great Mosque of Córdoba or the Mezquita—is a significant historical and architectural landmark in Córboda, Spain. It is considered one of the most accomplished examples of Islamic architecture in the world. I am interested in old architecture because it makes me wonder how they are still standing! 

What is the future of architecture and design? 
I can see architecture being connected to nature in a modern way, where buildings will use both technology and sustainability.
