Mia 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. Mia is one of ten college interns in an architecture program at either the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Kansas State, or Iowa State.
We at BCDM are happy to add her to the Apprentice Academy and BCDM this summer.

How did you become interested in this field?
Long before I even knew I wanted to be an architect, I grew inspired by the puzzle of tiny homes. Not only did I find a career that satisfies my logical and more scientific brain, but one which satiates my need to create.
What was your favorite place you have traveled and why?
For me, it’s Kalaloch in the Olympic National Park in Washington State. There is a grand sense of home and nostalgia for me because I grew up camping there every year with my family. I adore the greenery and ocean, bundling up next to the fire, the scents of pine and saltwater in the air, and the roar of the ocean crashing into the beach. Truly serene.
