Camila is a full-time student entering her last year of the 5-year Architecture Program
at Kennesaw State University, who recently received two Architecture scholarships
and maintained the HOPE scholarship for four years. Growing up in Bogota, Colombia,
she was exposed to a culture that constantly fights to overcome any obstacle, this
has made her a hard working woman that seeks any opportunity that will allow her to
develop her professional career and succeed as an Architect in the future.
During her time at KSU, she has been involved with school organizations and has been
elected by her peers to take a variety of leadership positions. As a member of the
Alpha Rho Chi fraternity and the Atlanta Institute of Architecture Students, she has
been the 3rd year Student’s Representative, Graphics Co-chair and current Professional
Chair as well as event coordinator for both organizations and the rest of the department.
Camila recognizes that experience is the best way of learning, and for this reason
she landed her first architecture internship with only two years of school completed
and since then has interned for three consecutive summers. During her downtime, Camila
loves to hike and travel.
One day, she dreams of becoming an Architect that doesn’t only design buildings to
fill up lots in a city, but spaces that truly reflect the culture and needs of the
people; most importantly, she wishes to one day be part of the current development
and growth Colombia is undertaking.
