Personal Statement

The most rewarding aspect of my fellowship was the opportunity to collaborate with an extraordinary team of fellows, consultants, and Department of Design and Construction representatives, as well as the resourceful and supportive Design Trust Staff.  I am also grateful to have met dozens of other individuals who shared their expertise and passion for the urban environment. I hope that our efforts will contribute to making New York a more livable and sustainable city.
