The Hip Hop Architecture Camp and one of our 2017 Austin Texas participants, Brianna White, was featured in Black Girl Nerds. As co-founder of the Urban Arts Collective, I have had the opportunity to work on many inspiring projects that involve bringing S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) education to individuals through the influence of hip-hop.

“My experience at The Hip Hop Architecture Camp showed me a variety of ways to help my community and allowed me to connect with architects who want to see young people grow and design better communities for future generations. I’m now enrolled at the University of Houston as an early high school graduate and I’m having an amazing time learning new things and meeting amazing people as I prepare to start the architecture program this summer.
