This is Agnes, expressing my deepest gratitude to people who have been by my side, supporting me, since the start of my thesis.
I would like to thank my advisors, Dean Fernandez,Arch. Clemente and Arch Cruz for giving me the freedom to choose what I love to do. They have been a great help by teaching me to act and be a professional in everything I do.
To my family and friends, who gave all their support and love by staying by my side and believing that everything is possible and giving up is never an option. They taught me to fight and stand up on my own for they believe that I am a strong person.
To my cat, for staying with me while doing my thesis at home. Having him makes me relax and happy.
To my classmates, who are also my second family, for making me happy and for appreciating everything I do for them. Living with them for 5 years has been amazing. And I thank them for giving me a wonderful architectural college life.
To my best friends for making me realize how strong a person should be when they go through the deepest and roughest road in their lives. They were there when I laugh and cry. They will always be awesome for letting me be myself at all times.
To the church, for letting me in late at night when I want to be on my own and talk to Him.
And lastly, to my God, for loving me and telling me that “now is not forever so stand up and fight”. He will always be my Savior for he keeps me going.
I finished and fought for this thesis for God and the people believing in me. They keep me strong when something wants me weak. Seeing them smile for me is the best achievement I’ll ever have. Making them happy is my ultimate task.
