Rashida Momoh is passionate about understanding the complex needs of a community in order to produce a conscientious, well-designed addition to the built environment. She plans to pursue a master’s degree in urban design and attain an architectural license in the upcoming years. Rashida’s love for urban design surfaced during her year spent in Cambridge, England where she traveled throughout Europe and appreciated the nuances between each city’s urban fabric.
She recently graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Architecture where she won the Fifth Year Juror’s Choice Award for her project titled, “Revitalizing Leftover Urban Arteries Through Color.” In 2016, she won 2nd place in the National Gensler Diversity Scholarship.
When she’s not at work, she can be found sketching, practicing yoga, reading a great mystery novel, or running along Memphis’ Greenline trail.
