My name is Daniella Ruiz. I am a recent interior design graduate from Paier College. During my undergrad, I’ve placed in various design competitions, attended design workshops and conferences, and interned at an interior design firm. Studying architecture at Italy's Accademia Riaci will allow me to explore the Italian perspective of all thing’s art and design, build a network of people in my desired field, and opens doors to a wide range of personal and professional opportunities.
