Name: Teisha Bradley
Hometown: Washington, DC
Educational Status: Second year Grad in a 3 year program
How would you describe your experience as a Black Architecture student?
Honestly I have just found a place where a feel comfortable being a Black Architecture student.
Why do you want to get your licensed?
I have wanted to get my license since I was first introduced to Architecture in the 8th grade. Becoming licensed is my professional goal.
At this moment my biggest inspiration is Kevin Heart. Watching his documentary Don’t F*** this up has motivated me to hold my self accountable.
How important is representation?
Representation is very important because it allows young men and women to see themselves in that role or job. It lets them know that they don’t have to be the ones to pave the way because there has already been someone that looks like them in that field. Lets them know anything is possible.
A friend of mines says that representation equals success. This has now become my motivation to get my masters in teaching and arts. Favorite quote? “Woman must not depend on the protection of man but must be taught to protect herself’’.
