#FutureArchitectFriday: Kyrah L. Williams, Assoc. AIA

Hi readers! It’s #FutureArchitectFriday. A day to celebrate those pushing themselves to becoming licensed architects.

Today, I decided to let you all see who’s behind the page: me. I won’t be answering many questions because you all will find out more about me later!

Name: Kyrah L. Williams

Hometown: Miramar, FL

Educational Status: Hooded – B. S. in Architectural Engineering (2016) and Master of Architecture (2018)

Why do you want to get your licensed?

When I was younger, I wanted to get my licensed because I wanted to build my dream home from top to bottom 😂. When I decided to embark on this journey, it became less about me and more about my community. I want to be able to change the stereotypical homeless shelter and affordable housing units to a more creative, inclusive environment. I want to create homes…not housing.

How important is representation?

I can’t stress how important it is. Taking a course from an individual or having a mentor that looks like you and talks like you is pivotal. Without representation, would there really be a sense of urgency to bring the next generation in? By there being representation, a different mindset is created when you can actually see and believe you can do it.

    Hello,

    My name is Willie Ferguson. I am currently a senior attending Clemson University majoring in Civil Engineering with a minor in Architecture and Management. I was referred to you by my sister who was referred by your father about potentially assisting or helping me to get an internship. I wanted to pursue Engineering because I wanted to design stadiums, arenas, and large commercial and government buildings.
