I want to brag for a second on one of our interns at the ML Group. Her name is Stephanie Maddamma, a graduate of Marcus High School who is now a budding architecture student at Texas A&M.

Stephanie is currently in Finland for the summer designing restaurants from the ground up. And when I say from the ground up, I mean right down to the silverware. We’ve been blessed to have her work with us during her summer and winter breaks, and our hope is she will join us again soon. Honestly, we learn something new from her every day.

She is a perfect example of what architecture students need to be doing to chase their passion, perfect their craft, and make the most of their downtime away from school. Stephanie plans to become a LEED-certified residential architect, and she is working toward a minor in sustainable architecture and planning.
But to truly get a leg up in the industry, she can’t solely rely on textbooks and college professors.

I am a huge proponent of hands-on experience and taking your career into your own hands. Here are just a few quick tips for aspiring architects who can make the most of their summer.

  • Tour Model Homes and Commercial Buildings
  • Attend Seminars and Industry Software Camps
  • Summer Internships
  • Interview Architectural Professionals
  • Work on your Portfolio and Keep Sketching

We realize the summer is time to relax and go on vacation, but be mindful of your future and the passion that got you into this profession in the first place.

I’d like to end this column by sending out a special and heartfelt congratulations to the 2018 graduating class of Argyle High School and Liberty Christian. Make us all proud!
