Ohemaa Pipim Gives Profile Feature


Ohemaa Pipim joined us this summer from the Commercial Real Estate Success Training (CREST) Internship program, which is designed to introduce people of color and women, both of whom are typically underrepresented, to the commercial real estate industry.

Ohemaa, you were an absolute delight to work with! We can’t wait to see what you accomplish in the future.

On Ohemaa’s last week here, we sat down to chat about her experience:

What was your favorite part of interning with MP?
There were so many great and new experiences I had as an intern. One of my favorite parts of interning with MP was going on-site to perform existing conditions for a warehouse and then helping to model it in Revit.

What is the most impactful thing you learned about architecture and design?
The most impactful thing I learned about architecture and design at MP is the importance of looking ahead to new trends, policies, and regulations that can affect the way we approach design.

What are your future plans after graduating?
Graduate school is definitely up next, but I also plan to visit family and sightsee in Europe next summer.

What made you want to start learning about A/E/C?
Early in my childhood, through personal experiences, I began to recognize and value the importance of being in spaces that are not only affordable but functional and aesthetic.

How did you get involved with the CREST program?
During my sophomore year at Brandeis, I met a CREST alum who highly recommended the program to me.

What has been your biggest takeaway since joining the CREST program?
My biggest takeaway is how many different possibilities there are in the CRE industry. Additionally, programs like CREST are pivotal for helping students build networks and start their careers, especially for students of color who may not have gotten these opportunities otherwise.Activate to view larger image,
