Christelle is a Lebanese-Venezuelan designer who grew up in Beirut, Lebanon. She is currently pursuing a Master of Architecture at the Weitzman School of Design and has been a Praxis fellow since 2020. Most recently, Christelle has utilized her design skills to renovate performance spaces and micro-businesses that were heavily affected by the 2020 explosion in Beirut, and hopes to continue diving into the reals of design for social impact. Prior to Penn, she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in architecture at Lehigh University. As a freelancer, she has expanded her horizons and worked on projects in San Francisco, Beirut, Barcelona, Abu Dhabi, Doha, and Zhengzhou. She is a well-rounded designer with a passion for language, culture, and visual communication in all of its forms.
