Amber Banks is really passionate about working with the youth. She is a board member for an organization that strives to help teenagers develop a plan for their future, promote growth and development through experiential learning, and providing mentoring. As an African American female architect, she hopes to act as an example for minority youth and show them that there are more opportunities available to them that they may not be aware of.
Amber enjoys drawing, reading, and making cards for birthdays and holidays. Her favorite holiday is Christmas because she loves buying or making gifts for her family.
If you’re pursuing a career in architecture, Amber has this advice: Architecture requires a lot of time, dedication, and attention to detail, but it can directly impact the way a community or individual experiences a space. We have the ability to physically shape the world around us.
