What were your favorite classes at Parsons?

Thesis with David Yun.

What did you wish you knew as a student that you know now?

Read more, try more, and absorb more. As an international student, it’s important to remain familiar with your own culture, and to be able to use it within your work.

Who do you look up to in the design community?

Eddie Opara and Natasha Jen. By working closely with them, I have learned that it’s essential to cultivate knowledge from outside of your professional field.

What has been the highlight of your career so far?

I am too young to say I have had any highlights yet, but it’s great to start my career with some amazing people here at Pentagram.
