Tell us about your passion.
I have always been passionate about sustainable architecture because I believe that it combines human creativity with the natural world around us. To me, it is the basis of improving and revolutionising the way we live today through innovation and I find that very fascinating.

What makes you happy?
Being around people who share the same humour and same interests as me and in general just exploring new things whether it is hiking on the weekends with my family or just being in an environment that helps me fulfil my passions.

What is the best part of studying in GIS?
Personally I feel that the teachers at GIS really make it more special as they care about each student and about attending to each student differently. They really go out of their way to ensure that we strive for the best and I think that is hard to find elsewhere.

Describe GIS in three words.
Community-based, welcoming, diverse
