My name is Roberto Arroyo as you may already know. I am Mexican-American and was born and raised in Chicago. I have one younger brother (15) who is in high school, a mother, and a father. I will be graduating from ITW David Speer Academy and will be attending IIT in the fall.
My interest in architecture sparked when I joined the Chicago Architecture Center Teen Fellows; I was intrigued by the work and dedication that architects would put in to their design and thought process. I enjoy learning about architecture and have since then pursued architecture as a career.
