A few words from our new Graduate Facade Engineer...
My full name is Elizaveta, but everyone calls me Lisa or Liza. I am 23 years old and I come from Estonia and I speak Estonian, Russian and English, also trying to learn German but it is still very basic.
I moved to the UK 4 years ago for uni. I've done an Architectural Engineering degree in Cardiff University, Wales. After graduation I've completed one year of work experience which I really liked and it allowed me to see the industry of Facade engineering from inside. It also gave me the understanding in what direction I want to develop professionally and this is what brought me to Patrick Ryan Associates, and I am very happy about it!
In my spare time I like going to various music concerts, art galleries, theatres or do anything outdoors. I consider myself to be a quite active and curious person so I'm always up for any sort of activities.
In the past I've done many years of violin class, various dancing and art classes. Also, when I was 16-19 did work with kids (summer camp leader and volunteering in children's house) and travelled in Europe for youth exchange projects.
Since I've moved to the UK I've met amazing friends that are now my family away from home and I very appreciate it.
