I attend the University of New Orleans pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I am 21-year-old rising senior, born in Austin, Texas. I grew up predominately in the small city of Kyle, Texas about 20 minutes out from Austin.
The factors that played a role in me choosing the University of New Orleans was the atmosphere and culture of the city of New Orleans. When I met my teammates, coaches, and other people there, it immediately felt like a home away from home and the people there were tight knit and like a family.
I chose engineering because I have a passion for learning about math and science. I feel as though engineering is the biggest way I can make an impact whether in the community or around the world using math and science. I really like creating things, solving problems, and seeing what I have designed, built, or fixed has a lasting impact on others. I feel like everyone will always need an engineer, as their job is to solve problems and to make life easier for everyone in their daily life.
