I’m so excited to share with all of you my journey to becoming an Interior Designer!
After two very hard months back home in Venezuela, I moved to Miami in January 2014 to continue pursuing my dream of getting a degree in Interior Design. I’m not going to lie, the change was not easy. Being far away from my parents and family was the hardest part. Setting up in a new and unfamiliar country with a different language was a real big challenge in my new adventure as an interior design professional. But with a open mind and a strong desire to succeed, I overcame my fear of the unknown and one year after my graduation, I got and accepted a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that completely changed my life: A job at DKOR Interiors!
I remember my first day at DKOR so clearly! The all-female design team kindly welcomed me with smiles, positive energy, and all had a helpful disposition. Everyone in my new office from the first moment I was there made me feel supported.
DKOR means a lot to me. It is a place where I grow every day, not only as an Interior Designer but also as a person. At DKOR I feel like I can be myself all of the time and where I can express myself freely. Even during our busy day we take time to share our ideas, solve our daily challenges together, and make each moment a pleasant one.
Teamwork is the magic word at DKOR. We work as a team and definitely know that 2,3,4 or 12 think better than one person. We are stronger and bigger as a team with diversity and a mix of cultures and backgrounds. As a team we help one another to improve and create amazing interior design projects for our clients.
The interior design firm, DKOR Interiors is not just my job, it is where I learn, appreciate, and grow as an interior design professional every day. The team has become a family to me that I am thankful to have next to me while I achieve all of my goals and dreams. I’m also really proud of our DKOR team too!
Last but not least, I dedicate this to my brother, because without him I wouldn’t be here.
