In the bustling metropolis of New York City, I embarked on an extraordinary journey as an architecture trainee, thanks to the invaluable opportunity provided by a J-1 visa.
As an aspiring architect, there couldn’t have been a more inspiring place to hone my skills and expand my horizons. Working at WORKac, I had the privilege of contributing to real-world projects that challenged me to think critically and innovatively. The support and camaraderie within the firm were instrumental in my growth both professionally and personally.
Beyond the architecture studio, I found myself exploring the city’s hidden gems, from charming neighborhoods to world-famous landmarks.
This incredible experience would not have been possible without the unwavering support and sponsorship of my mentors. Their belief in cultural exchange through the J-1 visa program provided me with this life-changing opportunity.
As my time in New York City draws to a close, I reflect on the profound impact this journey has had on me. The friendships formed, the lessons learned, and the memories created will forever hold a special place in my heart.
To my sponsors, I extend my deepest gratitude. Your generosity and dedication to fostering cross-cultural learning have shaped my path and opened doors to a brighter future in architecture.
As I prepare to depart, I carry with me a newfound sense of purpose and determination. Armed with the experiences gained in this city of dreams, I am eager to make a positive impact on the world through my architectural endeavors.
This journey has been a transformative chapter in my life, and I will forever be grateful to my sponsors, without whom none of this would have been possible. Here’s to the beginning of an exciting and fulfilling career in architecture!
