“Receiving this award has been a truly amazing experience and has allowed me to connect with many individuals in the design profession and has presented many opportunities. Being able to travel to New York to receive the award was also such a great experience and will be one of the most significant moments of my life. The people of PAVE and Bank of America who organized and sponsored the competition are truly the most kind hearted people and I will be forever grateful for all the effort and hard work that they put into the competition and event. “
