Simona completed her Part I at University of the West of England, Bristol. Before moving to the UK, she lived in Bulgaria. Having experienced two different cultures inspired Simona to explore the impact design has on social interactions. In order to explore new design approach, she volunteers in a variety of design programmes with kids which offer her with different thinking in design development and problem solving.
In her year out, Simona worked at Grimshaw Architects where she will stay as part of her LSA placement.
