FMD Welcomes New Summer Interns from Kent State University

May 28, 2019 | News, Press Release

We are very excited to have Emily Ussia and Walter Hunt with us this summer! We love their positive attitudes and eagerness to learn, and are ready with lots of work to keep them busy over the next few months. Their experience will also be enriched with many opportunities to grow their knowledge of architecture during design, bidding and construction phases. Our goal is that they will get as much benefit from being with us as we will receive from their assistance. Welcome to you both!
A little about our interns….

Emily grew up in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania and grew to love architecture through her interests in high school. With a love for art and design combined with a strong interest in math and science, she realized architecture was a perfect fit because it opened up a new realm of technical design. Her interest in architecture has continually grown by understanding that architects have the opportunity to design for peoples’ happiness. They do not design for themselves, but for others. Emily became an architecture major and construction management minor at Kent State University in 2017 and will be a junior in the coming fall semester. She aims to complete both her undergraduate and graduate degree to work towards becoming a licensed architect. Emily has a passion for learning and welcomes any knowledge that comes her way. She chose FMD Architects for her internship because it was clear that it was a place she could learn and grow. She admires the firm’s willingness to teach and welcoming atmosphere of its employees.

Born in Akron, Ohio Walter Hunt is a rising senior at Kent State University. His fierce passion for architecture is fueled by the affirmation from his grandmother. As Walter reminisces on his childhood, he was always reminded by her that he would become the family architect. His creative talent had developed heavily as the years passed and this gives him determination and patience. As Walter prepares to begin his final year of school., he will be gaining professional exposure, building relationships, and feeding his passion with FMD Architects. When Walter isn’t designing, you can find him reading, at the coffee shop, or helping others in his community. “You can have it all, you just have to plan it” is one of the phrases Walter lives by. He is ready to tackle projects at FMD with the world in front of him.
