But it’s not about the how; it’s about the where.
  – Rumi, Persian Poet

For any architecture student school is a second house; for an international architecture student it is the first! Two days after I moved to U.S. in 2018, I found myself in a classroom at CAPLA and from that day, that building became my house and the third floor of the east building became my bedroom! While I was thousands of miles far from my family, I found friends here from all over the world, who have been my mates in happiness and sadness. I was also so lucky to learn from the best faculty and I was luckier to work with two of the best, Mary Hardin and Aletheia Ida. I’d like to thank them for teaching me whatever I need to continue my journey in architecture and be successful in my life. I thank everyone who has supported me along the way to stand where I am now from my family in Iran, my husband, my friends and everyone who has made CAPLA what it is. It’s been a long four semesters but all in all, I am so glad with where I am in my life now and I owe it to the whole CAPLA!
