In user experience design ,critical thinking, research, design and problem analysis skills are needed to create a seamless and memorable experience for clients and customers. I noticed that the skills I acquired in nursing correlate with that of a user experience designer. Hence, my desire and passion as a women for engineering has caused me to change my career from nursing. It's no secret that men dominate the tech industry and that women are under represented. Hence, this scholarship will will help break barriers to the tech industry and make it possible for me to pursue a degree in Human Computer Interaction at ISU. My goal is to be a role model for young girls and women around the world through my presence, hard work, and determination to succeed in a male dominant role. No matter what...you girls and women should always believe in yourself, learn from your mistakes and smile when you overcome them. Thank you for reading my post and giving me this opportunity .

World’s cities and urban architecture is where I see myself, researching, planning, creating and mostly making an impact on future lives. The architecture world is more than just a profession I chose as my work, It’s the way of life I chose to live by, a science that I can express my Structural vision, contributions and ambitions to improve people’s living environments,around the world. I I have recently graduated from : Masters in Advanced Architecture program in IAAC – Barcelona. Winning this scholarship will make it possible for me to continue my masters studies with the Design of Cities program in Sci –Arc, LA . and push me one step forward in Pursuing my goals. In both of my bachelors and masters studies, my main theses were involved with the urban research, structure planning and development. Before In order to further base and strengthen my knowledge with our serownding enviroment, I studied marine biology physics chemistry and mathematics. These are my fundamental foundations and the sources to most of my inspirations. I find architecture and urban planning to be the most natural continuance to the multi-disciplinary path I have experienced and gained so far. Human behavior, history, societies, demography, philosophy, cultures, religions, technology, structure, natural phenomenal, biology, environment eco systems and physics, all are reflections of the reality in which is our responsibility to take care of. Thank you for this opportunity.
