Lucyna answers the Proust Questionnaire

What is your favourite occupation? 

"I was fortunate enough to know I wanted to be an architect when I was twelve. I was lucky again years later when after I graduated from Carleton University at the depth of a recession that I was hired by one of the best custom residential architects in Toronto (Gordon Ridgely); apparently he hired me because he liked my postal code and the fact that I was “fully vaccinated”. I had a great mentor at Gordon’s who taught me most things I know about designing."
