As an architectural associate and masters candidate in Urban Design, it is clear that my heart lies in the realm of bettering the built environment. Since receiving my accredited professional degree in Architecture from the University of Oklahoma, I have dedicated more than 1000 hours to working with low-income communities in my city. As an aspiring Urban designer, it is my goal to be the method of communication between broken, stagnant, or upcoming communities and various government agencies. I strive to educate the public on greener and more environmentally friendly lifestyles as well as exposing people to healthy place-making methods while actively communicating with the politics who can further assist these communities. As an Architectural associate, I educate my clients on the importance of LEED buildings and revitalizing the urban footprint the world has. It is no secret that buildings contribute a dangerous amount to the green house gasses being released into our atmosphere. But as a designer, I have the opportunity I educate developers on these important facts and encourage them to take action. As Miss Earth USA, I can educate many more developers, communities, schools, and cities outside of my state. I want to educate hundreds of cities on the importance of revitalizing the built environment we already have and encouraging the implementation of LEED certification standards in city policies. Miss Earth is an amazing platform for encouraging smart, green design into city and state design standards, and I believe with this title I can make that change.
