About Me

Hi! My name is Raissa, thanks for visiting my page! I'm currently at Washington University in St. Louis in the process of completing my Bachelor of Design in Architecture. In addition to my studies in Architecture, I'm also pursuing a second major in Psychology and a minor in Design.

In my free time, I enjoy dancing and collecting post cards from different cities, and I'm always on the lookout for new favorite restaurants. As the quiet girl in the back of the classroom silently doodling through hours of lectures, I often found difficulty in expressing myself in other forms besides art. My passion for art eventually transformed into design, fueled by conversations and a desire to understand the people and environment around me. 

My goal as a designer is to understand people. I strive to empathize with the user to design for the user. I am never fully satisfied with what I know or what I make. I'm a curious perfectionist who is always searching for more. I thrive in group settings filled with conversation and questions, and I love working with people from all sorts of backgrounds.
