RIBA Role Models

Our very own Maral has been made one of twelve RIBA Role Models.

From the RIBA: "Architecture is becoming an increasingly inclusive profession, one that offers rich possibilities for a wide range of talented individuals.
12 role models explain how they have been able to forge careers within architecture. In doing so they send a message to others who may share one or more aspects of their identity – such as gender, background, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation or education – that this could be a profession where they might thrive."

You can read about her journey to becoming an Architect here.
