I believe that design, along with sustainable practices, has the power to change the world. As a designer, I feel the responsibility to create beautiful spaces that are safe and effective, for both the public and the environment. Spending time between Venezuela and the U.S. has allowed me to gain a new perspective about the benefits of helping our communities, with the application of green design. During my time at the Academy of Art University, I have been able to learn and practice the importance of cohesive and practical design, as a way of helping those who need it the most. Through my experiences at the Academy, I have been able to build strong skills in regards to sales and trade, which has allowed me to work alongside designers and architects in the textile industry. Great design has the capacity to change our views about our way of living.
