Nippon Paint’s Asia Young Designer Awards (AYDA) Philippines — My First National Competition Judging Experience!
Believe it or not, I once thought that having a great career and starting my own design company are my end goals. Not until this great opportunity presented itself to me did I realize that there is so much more I can do aside from designing buildings and managing a business.
I remember when I was about to finish university, I was so excited and eager to find a job as an architect. My plan was simple— to work for the biggest and renowned architectural firm in the country.
Sounds lovely, isn’t it? But fast forward to today, here I am sitting in my office. No, I am not working for any firm at the moment nor am I in one of the highest skyscrapers in the city— and that’s okay.
