What do you want to do with your engineering degree?
I graduated in May and will be working in the Manufacturing & Engineering Associate (MEA) rotational program with General Mills. I will spend time as a Project Engineer, Systems Engineer, and Supervisor Engineer.
What was the first thing you got involved in at Purdue?
The first organization I got involved in was the Honors Engineering Learning Community. The learning community helped me to get through my first year classes and I made lots of friends and study buddies along the way!
What is your favorite thing about Purdue?
My favorite part about Purdue is that it has both a big and a small school feeling. I love taking advantage of the big school opportunities, like attending Big 10 sporting events. I was also able to create the small school feeling by joining the Purduettes! Another great thing about Purdue is its great first year engineering program, including honors engineering opportunities.
Who has been your greatest influence?
My parents and four older siblings have been the biggest influence on my life. As the youngest of five children, I’ve had lots of people to look up to. I’ve also been able to learn from their mistakes!
