Jaily is a part of a professional development model that fosters design and construction career pathways known as the Apprentice Academy. This program provides participants with actual projects to integrate purposefully applied academics with real-world practice experiences. These experiences are structured in a sequential way that accelerates their pathway concurrently with their secondary and post-secondary academic tracks. Jaily is one of eight high school interns from the Ralston, District 66, Omaha Public or Millard Public school districts.
We at BCDM are happy to add her to the Apprentice Academy and BCDM this summer.

How did you become interested in this field?
My interest in this field began when my parents remodeled their house. I knew that someday I would design my own home, and this drives me to learn more about architecture and design. I also get excited about the idea of designing safe homes for families to grow and cherish with their loved ones.
What was your favorite place you have traveled and why?
One of my favorite places I visited was New York City. I loved the museums and the history you can experience by walking through the city. I really enjoyed the shows and the plays I was able to attend, and being able to share this special experience with my mom.
