A SCI-Arc graduate student, Hope has always found it easier to express herself through drawing. "I've always thought to myself, 'Think beyond the ordinary…' and from an early age I found myself daydreaming and drawing things I observed and those waiting to be created somewhere, somehow," said Pollonais. "I feel SCI-Arc is the ideal intellectual fit for me because it couches a parallel outlook on life and it sustains the nature of dynamic thought. My experience at SCI-Arc won't be the completion or conclusion of my abilities and talents but rather the catalyst to accomplishing my idea of success. The tools made available by the school are a piece of the puzzle that will help me attain what I've done in the past, on a larger scale."

Hope's acute interest in urbanism led her to choose SCI-Arc for her graduate school experience. Located in the dense and culturally rich area of downtown Los Angeles, the school is an integral part of the emerging cultural hub of a city with a tradition of architectural experimentation. "I'm pursuing architecture to gain a better knowledge of the interaction between people and structures through the disposition of form and function."

Hope is confident the M.Arch program at SCI-Arc will equip her with the essential skills to advance and accomplish her dream of philanthropy and societal betterment. "I'm confident I will emerge from SCI-Arc with an increased and broad foundation of skills and industry relationships. With this knowledge and fewer barriers, I would continue on my ambitious path toward leaving a permanent and positive impact on the world through architecture."
