School of Interiors Students selected for Metropolis’s Future 100 Program
University of Kentucky College of Design School of Interiors graduate students Yasmin Mohamed and Peiwen Qin have been selected for Metropolis’s Future 100 program in the Interior Design Graduate Winner category. As part of the Future100, Mohamed and Qin were featured in Metropolis’ March/April issue.
“It is a privilege to have been selected as one of the top 100 interior design graduate students by Metropolis,” said Qin. “During my studies, I have received the greatest support from my professors and peers, allowing me to fully explore the direction of my design research.”
Each year, Metropolis sets out to designate the top graduating architecture and interior design students in the United States and Canada who are leaders on their campuses, who advocate for equity and inclusion through their work and extracurriculars. Honorees were nominated by their instructors and mentors. Both Mohamed and Qin were nominated by College of Design assistant professor Hanna Dewhirst.
According to the Metropolis website, the students selected for the Future 100 are “a diverse group—with many women, as well as those who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, or neurodivergent—they are leaders on their campuses, advocating for equity and inclusion through their work and extracurriculars.”
Says Mohamed, “I am honored to be recognized by Metropolis magazine. This award is a testament to the hard work I have put into my craft as a student at the University of Kentucky School of Interiors. It acknowledges the significant help I got from my professors and faculty mentors. I am excited to continue pushing the boundaries of design and making a positive impact in the industry.”
