Ayaka Matthews is currently a second year student in the Landscape Architecture Master’s degree program at West Virginia University. She has a background in Ecology from Kyoto University in Japan. The focus of her study was the integrative techniques of regional planning and ecosystem management through the principles of ecosystem services and biodiversity. Now, she would like to focus on design spaces into places which address world issues between humans and nature in ecological dynamics, especially in regards to natural hazards. She agrees and lives by the idea, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” as Mahatma Gandhi said, and she believes landscape architects can help facilitate this change in people through design that is restorative and responds to the need for the human-nature connection in order to build a better world for the future.

Raised in Kaneohe, Oahu, Angelica graduated Magna Cum Laude with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Anthropology, International Studies and Japanese from Pacific University. Having received the honor and support of a Fulbright Fellowship to continue her bachelor’s thesis research on Japanese Garden preservation, Angelica spent one year living and researching gardens in Japan. It was in Japan that she realized how the preservation efforts of Hawai’i’s unique landscapes were in need of creative thought and action. This realization led Angelica to her current Master’s degree studies of Landscape Architecture at the University of Washington. With a research focus of designing outdoor environmental education play spaces for young children based on Native Hawaiian cultural traditions and values, Angelica is determined to return to Hawai’i to not only become a professional landscape architect but to use her education, training and experiences to be a cultural landscape steward for Hawai’i’s environment in the face of urban development.

Currently a junior landscape architecture student at California Polytechnic State University, Jillian is wholly engaged in developing skills to solve social and environmental challenges in communities large and small. She believes in the potential to improve land quality, human health, and economic issues through urban farming and community redesign. As a movement towards innovative ways to grow food locally and sustainably is blossoming, she strives to be a pioneer of systems design for urban vegetable and fruit farming. She is also interested in bioremediation - the cleaning of contaminated soils through use of plants. “There is opportunity to re-design formerly underused and unhealthy landscapes into healthy areas for human interaction and agricultural production. Such spaces could also be areas for recreation and enjoyment. My vision is to design and re-design spaces which foster understanding of sustainable systems and involve people in caring for the land and their own health.”

Kim Cloward Drown is a graduate student at Utah State University. Her master’s thesis looks at dramatic play affordances within natural and manufactured outdoor settings for preschool-aged children. Kim was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawai‘i where she grew up hiking in the Ko‘olau Mountains and playing in the ocean off the south shore of O‘ahu. Prior to graduate school, Kim worked in Hawaiian history and art museums where she gained an interest in learning environments. Kim wants to have a positive impact by designing landscapes that contribute to social, economic, and environmental sustainability. She believes she can do this by understanding and advocating for outdoor spaces that support child development and learning.
