Well, this one's easy! I've actually had an interest in interior design since I was in Jr. High. During my 8th grade year we had nine-week rotational classes, and one of them happened to be drafting. Those nine weeks sure flew by fast, but boy did they leave a mark on me!
In that class we were able to hand-draft a house using graph-paper. It was then that I became fascinated by the concept of space, form, and function. After that, I began rearranging my bedroom's furniture layout on almost a monthly basis.
Though I was always interested in the concept of interior design, it did take me a while to figure out that there were actually careers within this field. For some reason I just couldn't believe that people get paid to have this much fun! Once I realized that this could be more than just an interest, I started looking into colleges that offered interior design programs. The rest is history!
