M. Ann Prendergast Scholarship
2023 Prendergast Scholar
Florida A&M University
I am currently going to school for pre-architecture and I plan to graduate with my masters using FAMU’s 4+1 degree program. Architecture is something I have always found interesting, when I was younger I used to play with LEGOs and make houses on the Sims 4. I was always fascinated with the end goal, it felt so rewarding to see the finished product in all its beauty.
My creativity first started to blossom when I began dancing, I really enjoyed expressing myself with
the art and I still do to this day. Architecture seemed to bond the best of both worlds for me. I am able to express myself creatively by designing and seeing my work out in the real world. I will be able to see my designs built in real time and watch how the final product benefits the community it's placed in. All in all, I want to use architecture to not only express myself but
create a safer, more efficient, and more beautiful space for those around the world.
