I want to be an architect

A student at the Royal University of Fine Arts majoring in architecture and urbanism told LIFT about her dream “to become a great architect in the future”.

Reth Monyroath, 20, is studying in year three and in two and a half years will complete her bachelor’s degree. “I’ve liked drawing since I was young. So after I finished high school I talked to my dad about studying architecture,” she said.

Monyroath knows architecture is not an easy discipline to study, but she will put her best efforts into it: “I know it’s a difficult subject, but it’s my passion.”

Aside from studying for the architecture class, Monyroath also makes time to meet up with her group projects and assignments and to ask her professor for feedback.

She said, “I would like an architect to share their experiences and tips for all students in this field to help us prepare for our future.”
