Affordable Housing, Access to Education, Racial Injustice, Immigration, and Food Insequrity.

Major: Architecture

Project: I am interested in addressing the housing crisis. Affordable housing is plummeting; individuals and families are finding themselves stuck and unable to meet the costs of high-priced homes. There should not be a struggle to afford a secure place to live.

Inspiration: My biggest inspiration for this project is my community and those around me. I understand what this issue means personally and have seen it all across my community.

Future Plans: Living in a secure home should not feel impossible or overwhelming to keep, which is why I hope to combat home insecurity with my work. I hope to better understand and work towards a solution that would set families and individuals up for success with their housing situation.
