As Interviewed by Sofia B., March 16, 2016
"I have a friend who is one year older than I am who tried to go to undergraduate school so she would have been trying like six years earlier than I did and they told her 'No, no, you won't go to architecture school, you would go to interior design school.' They wouldn't let her apply."
