Hello! My name is Hussein and I am in grade 11. I love art, urban planning and architecture and have been doing them as a hobby for years, which is why I decided to join the 1UP team. I also love animation and 3D modeling and using them to create unique, fictional cities. I hope that whatever I end up doing as a career, it relates to any one of these!
I'm Steven, a grade 11 student. I've grown up interested in programming, drawing, and graphic designs, but more recently interested in urban planning. I cycle to school and back every morning, enjoying a nice, peaceful journey with friends but would hope that more students at my school do the same. One of my friends introduced me to the world of urban planning, and how issues relating to mobility, climate change, and livability can be addressed using urban planning approaches. I joined the chapter and became an executive, both educating myself and others of urban planning issues, and how to make our school a more inviting place for all through the design challenge.
