My name is Layla Dessouki, and I am a design student at Freestyle Academy. I have really enjoyed my time here at Freestyle, and am thankful for the opportunity to participate in it. During my time at Freestyle, I have developed my passion for art and design. I am really influenced by my culture, so I really enjoyed our junior year documentary project, where I got the opportunity to combine my passion for design, and my love of my culture. In the future, I hope to continue to pursue art and design as well as international affairs, and hope to combine the two.
