I'm Amber Rivard and am a sophomore at UWMilwaukee. I am studying architecture and adding a leadership certificate to my degree. I am from Brookfield, WI which is about 20 minutes away from here. I live in a UWM owned apartment building; Purin Hall. I am the mentor for the Leadership LLC this year. I was a student in this LLC last year and lived in Riverview.
My overall goal is to become a well-rounded person. As a result I do my best to get very involved with student organizations. I do volunteer work through Circkle K. For those of you who are familiar with Key Club from high school, Circle K is the college version. We do volunteer work on campus and within the greater Milwaukee community. I am also involved in the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) organization as the sophomore class representative. I love being involved in this organization because it supplements my major, gives me opportunities to network with professionals, build architecture computer skills and I get paired up with a mentor to help me with my studio projects. I am the Outreach Specialist for the Ahora! Latin Dance Organization. We stand for dance, dedication and diversity. I love dancing in my free time and preparing for performances on campus and within the Milwaukee community. It's a great stress reliever and my favorite hobby!
