Diana joined CICADA in September of 2017. She is a young and aspiring architect currently in her third year in Drexel University’s 2+4 Bachelors of Architecture program, and expects to graduate in 2021. Diana is an ambitious and eager student ready to expand her knowledge on all aspects of architecture from overall aesthetics to finite details. Diana is a natural problem solver and enjoys learning through precedent studies. Her goals are to continue to learn how to design for the better of a community and have her designs seamlessly connect back into the original fabric of the site, while being able to freely express her creativity. Being a first generation Vietnamese-American, she is grateful to have the opportunity to continue her education at Drexel, and learn and grow in her work environment at CICADA along with the assistance and mentorship of her coworkers.
Drexel’s architecture program pushes Diana to pursue licensure by participating in NCARB’S Architectural Experience Program. Outside of work, Diana is a member of Drexel’s AIAS chapter, Vietnamese Students Association (VSA), University Choir, and GMM Smart House. In her free time, Diana is a food junky; animal lover and advocate; in shower popstar; book worm; and film binge watcher.
