“I was the boy that would break the toys to see what was inside,” Julio Torres remembers. So when a family friend who was taking an architectural college course came to his home in the Dominican Republic with an illustration of a house, young Julio was amazed by his first introduction to architecture. “I think that’s where it started,” says Julio, a Cornell University transfer student who graduated from Morrisville State College (MSC) with an associate degree in Architectural Studies & Design in May. Julio moved to Bronx, N.Y. to live with an aunt at the age of 17. That summer he took some English as a Second Language classes before starting South Bronx High School. Once he graduated, he decided to continue his education at Morrisville State College. by Lelita L. Cannon
