Any advice for those, especially those in an ethnic minority, looking to enter design?
You don't just break into it. You have to have some talent for it. It's hard to just walk in and say, "This is what I'm gonna do." You have to have some knowledge of what you're getting into: basic [design] knowledge, ACE Mentor-taught knowledge. Kids progress...then when they graduate from high school, they [go] on to college for architecture or engineering.
You've got to keep the goal posts moving. If you keep the goal posts moving and never give up, you're gonna reach that goal every time.
