The career that I would like to pursue when getting my bachelor’s degree is to remodel/renovate homes and buildings. There is a lot of potential within spaces that people need to realize. Structures most times don’t need to be torn down, unless there’s substantial structural damage. The spaces just need to be thought through and updated. I want to be able to bring an aesthetic and functional design that is affordable and works. I know there are some interior designers that go for the most expensive products. I also know that there are ways of re-purposing items like bringing a piece of furniture back to life with an example being reupholstering the material used if cloth or refinishing kitchen cabinets. There are some people that would like the more expensive, new products that could afford it, but I also know with the economy that the general public are more likely to withhold from spending. If I received this scholarship, it would help to pay off student loans that I’ve acquired. With that help, I can start putting back money for starting my own business as I know one needs money up front. I want to bring my design view to the general public that’s functional and affordable.
