Joy is in her final year of a Master of Architecture degree at the University of Calgary. Her studies have taken her across Canada and she's participated in multiple foreign exchange courses and volunteer excursions. Joy was initially drawn to architecture for its potential to be used as a communication tool and social bridge. She likes to design spaces that act as mixing pots for society.

"To me successful buildings are those which exist as a collaboration of ideas, coupled with an empathetic understanding of how the created space will be used. I believe that all architecture should give more than it takes and that each piece we erect should do so in a manner that positively affects the city and its people."
