Every day is a step closer to having my dream job: Landscape Architect! As a student at Mississippi State University, I am pursuing a double major: Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and Bachelor of Science in Landscape Contracting and Management, as well as a double minor in Horticulture and Business. These educational pursuits will equip me for a successful future as a Landscape Architect in my home area of northeast Texas, specifically, Texarkana. As a Landscape Architect I will be tasked with managing natural resources for the best conservation as well as adding aesthetic value to commercial and residential locations.
In order to secure my dream job, I need to focus primarily on my education at Mississippi State. Further, I need to surround myself with the best mentors in the business which will be achieved through internships and annual design week activities. Finally, I will need to master strategies for marketing and managing a business entity in Landscape Architecture.
