Why did you choose engineering?

I chose engineering because I wanted to make a positive impact in my community, big or small, on a daily basis. Having a career that would challenge me every day was crucial in my selection process.

What do you hope to get out of the SELF Program?

I hope to leave the SELF program with a particular set of skills that many engineers do not have coming out of college. Moreover, I hope to have the skills and traits like interpersonal relations, business acumen, and communication that set me apart from other engineers.
