Aysheema S.Layuerre

Aysheema Laguerre better known as Sheema is currently a fifth year student originally from Cocoa Florida but moved to Cary North Carolina in the 8th grade. Moving from the topical climate of Florida to the arid environment of Cary lead Sheema to attend Virginia Tech University. Throughout her life she has experienced trials and tribulations that have shaped and molded her into the person she is today. She never wanted to become a landscape architect until her junior year of high school. During a summer attending North Carolina State University’s design camp, her whole view of design shifted. She values landscape architecture and the opportunities which stem from the broad range of capabilities when given the chance to do so. She believes, landscape architecture is a tool to change the way we perceive the environment, while it can become an advocacy tool for the social change we wish to see in the world. As Michelangelo di Lodovico said, “The greater damage for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.” Sheema is aiming to be the best she knows through the means of collaboration, integration, connection. Landscape Architecture has forever changed her view of the landscape around her and she hopes to do the same in her career. She will be working for Land Resource Design Group in Orlando Florida upon graduation.
