BFA INTERIOR DESIGN
(SHE / HER / HERS)
I have always had a passion for interior design. Starting around the age of ten, I knew this was what I wanted to do with my future. The War Horse is a community center for women veterans. I was inspired by my husband who served in the Army for four years and, though he is a man, I wanted to do something for women since there is nothing out there designed specifically for them. To be a veteran means that you have served this country; yet there is very little out there for the people that put their lives on the line for us. War Horse offers to all women veterans a sense of support, reassurance, and community. The sole purpose of this center is to serve as a safe place for women who have experienced trauma and pain during their contracts with the armed services; as well as a place to receive support and to build a community with other women who have experienced the same things. War Horse serves as a hub where women of different races, religions, and backgrounds can forge relationships by meeting and bonding over shared experiences.
