Back to school usually means new backpacks, lunchboxes, and clothes. But this year, it might…
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.
