Why did you join NOMA?
I joined NOMA because of the very principles and objectives the organization maintains. I am able to discuss design ideas among my peers. I am within a community of other design professionals who are just as enthusiastic about the industry as I am, whilst also engaging the community with our vision to promote excellence in our field. Also, there is a lack of representation of people of color and women in this industry, so it is a great way to be able to provide a different point of view and experience from someone who falls into both of those categories. Lastly, I am a part of organization which provides opportunities to provide guidance and mentorship to those who are developing their career and/or interested in design professions.
