Edlin School + Future City Competition

As a Maharam Foundation STEAM Fellow, I worked with The Edlin School for gifted children to prepare select students for the Future City Competition. Through lectures about the needs of aging populations, urban planning, and design ethics, I provided background for the children to develop their concept for the competition. Once their concept was developed, I provided guidance on model construction. The students went on to win first place in the 2017-2018 Future City Competition. 

American Institute of Architects DC

During the Summer of 2017, I led workshops and seminars with American Institute of Architects DC members to brainstorm solutions for housing issues facing Washington, DC’s aging populations.

RISD Quickies: Peer-to-Peer Learning Organization

During my time at RISD, I worked to run RISD Quickies, a student led, peer-to-peer learning platform supporting skill sharing between students across RISD and Brown University. Through various forms of resource coordination, content distribution, and a rebrand to reach a broader audience, I organized an average of fifty events per year.

While director, I led workshops (Adobe Illustrator for Beginners, Intro to Soapmaking, and more) for students in addition to teaching instructors how to lead workshops themselves. 

Conditional Design Workshop

In designing the workshop through conditional specifications, I could not know the exact outcome, consequently allowing myself to learn alongside the participants. In the workshop, individuals were asked to find a partner and participate in an exercise in which one partner must silently lead the other through an activity described on the front of the blindfold, without the partner previously knowing what the action is.
