Junior Architect, Madurai
When I reflect on my 5 years in KSOA, I believe that the experience not only made me a better person, but also prepared me to face unpredictable challenges in my career. Through workshops with incredibly supportive classmates, and professors who were nothing short of champions, I was challenged to discover the “Architect” in me. Having been shaped in part by the collegial and creative environment at KSOA, I found myself able to communicate, innovate, create and collaborate in ways that enabled me to build a rewarding career. It was a wonderful time in my life and the best educational experience I’ve had which shaped me to become the Architect I am today.
