“To shine means to make a positive impact on other people and on your community.”
After graduating from uLethbridge last year with a Bachelor of Fine Arts - Art, Linda Shi (BFA ’15) is off to earn her master’s degree in architecture at UCLA in California.
“I want to study architecture because I want to design meaningful buildings and create a positive impact on people’s lives,” she says.
Originally from China, Linda moved to the U.S. with her family when she was 14 years old. After living in Iowa and California, she received her permanent residency in Canada and settled in Lethbridge, where she studied fine arts at uLethbridge.
“I had always been interested in art; uLethbridge gave me the opportunity to pursue it,” she says. “The instructors were amazing. They broadened my understanding of art, provided me with constructive feedback, taught me new skills and boosted my confidence.”
Excited about the road ahead, Linda says she feels well prepared for graduate school.
“My fine arts background strengthens by interest in design and will provide a fantastic foundation for my future in architecture.”
