Words I live by:

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
“Science, no matter how advanced, is only as meaningful as the lives it transforms.”
“Grit, raw endurance, perseverance, and passion keeps you going despite obstacles."

In my spare time I like to: Garden, bullet journalling, pelotoning, hang out with friends, take advantage of nice weather/nature and go on walks/hikes, site seeing, bake for fun and not as a chore, cook, watch TED Talks/ YouTube/TikToks, Play with Simba bear and Miss Kora, etc.

Future Aspiration(s): When I first signed up to do Environmental Engineering, I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to do. As an aspiring environmental engineer, I wanted to work with wastewater purification systems utilizing nanotechnology to change the water pollution rate in the world and help people in the third world areas. I still have a passion in this field, however, I learned that my passion has always been to work and help people in general. Through BRIDGE and EDOC, I now want to pursue a career in outreach, education, student affairs, etc. and continue to work in a college setting, but also geared toward engineering. As a growing human being, I want to inspire others like those who have already and continue to inspire me every day.
