Sustainable Architecture

I am really interested in Sustainable Architecture, so hopefully I will be able to have a job with as much room for creativity and innovation as possible. I know that this is what I want to do and I'm trying to do whatever I can to make it happen, and this award will really help.

This whole college process is extremely stressful, and the amount of money I'm going to have to eventually pay has me in a certain state of shock. Growing up in a low-income household, I've learned how to make the most out of every dollar and cent. This scholarship is a little more weight off my shoulders and will help beyond explanation. Thank you so much!
