I recently have been looking for an internship for this up coming summer. I have been trying to use my networking skills by contacting people that my family knows or through other connections. A couple of days ago I got some information about a company called Dwell with Dignity. So, i checked their website to see what they were all about and discovered their motto "Inspiring Lives with Design." I was highly interested. I later found out that they were a non-organization who's goal was to create beautiful homes for people struggling with homelessness and poverty.
I have always said that whatever I do I want to make a difference in people's lives. I feel like much of interior design is about helping people who have alot of money and who can afford nice expensive things. I think that this is a way of God showing me that their is more you can do with an interior design degree besides working on multi million dollar projects. As interior designers we can make a difference in peoples lives.
