Hillary Morales Robles is a dual-degree Master's Candidate in Architecture and Historic Preservation at the Stuart Weitzman School of Design. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Hillary graduated Magna Cum Laude in Environmental Design and Western Art History from the University of Puerto Rico. She sees her profession as an act of service, which led her to work alongside multiple community-led projects and non-profit organizations in Puerto Rico and South America. Her interdisciplinary approach in design explores historic narratives, policy-making tools, human rights, psychology, political conflicts, and cultural trauma. She is an Executive Board Member at Inclusion in Design, a student-led organization that intends to foster an environment in which students of color, marginalized identities, and allies can thrive at the School of Design.
