Kadmiel Konan is a sophomore in the Industrial Design program at the Hines College of Architecture of Design. He is originally from the Ivory Coast, located on the south coast of West Africa. Konan moved to Dallas, Texas where he began taking community college courses before transferring to the University of Houston to pursue Industrial Design. He believes that Industrial Design allows him to pursue his passions for drawing, technology, and helping others. Konan is a part of the International Students Organization as well as a member of Alpha Rho Chi, the co-educational fraternity for students in architecture and the allied arts. Konan and other members of Alpha Rho Chi have created the podcast Sorry I’m in Studio, where they interview Hines College professors, students, and alumni. Konan’s goal after he graduates is to use his knowledge of Industrial Design and become an entrepreneur supporting causes such as environmental sustainability and education for the youth.
