Why did you choose to study architecture?

I was greatly inspired by architecture as a little girl, always drawing floor plans and visiting places such as national trust and historic Scotland properties. This interest continued to grow the older I became, with my natural ability at Graph Com and Art being another evident factor.

Who inspired you to become an architect?

I would probably say that my grandparents are the biggest inspiration, they introduced me to architecture and helped my love for it flourish. Even to this day they inspire me.

What was the most challenging part of your project?

Juggling everything! Definitely always having juggling. Completing the course with two children and a job has always been challenging, but here we are and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Juggling home life, work life and university has given me a great understanding for time management, something that will probably help me for years to come.

When I left college to start university, my lecturer suggested that I would be better suited to the Architecture Technology course as 'the architecture course is very demanding and might be difficult with your daughter'... 6 years on I have completed the Architecture course, with two little girls - not just one - and managing to hold down an job in an architecture firm. Outside architecture, my time is generally spent 'exploring' the outdoors with my two girls and partner. We have recently begun Munroe bagging, which offers a great sense of achievement.
