Why did you choose Cornell and/or Cornell Engineering?
I am involved in research, varsity Track and Field, peer advising, student-athlete advisory committee, Cornell Materials Society, and work a desk job on campus!

What is your favorite thing about Cornell and/or Cornell Engineering?
My favorite thing about Cornell Engineering is the rigor of the training we are made to go through, and the many resources available to walk us through and guide us in approaching problems creatively and ingeniously.

How did you get involved outside the classroom?
Outside the classroom, I’m actively involved in research, tutoring and teaching assistantship, which I delight in as capacities to serve the engineering community and mentor students in courses I have taken and enjoyed. I’m also involved in student organizations on campus such as the Society of Women Engineers and Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers which offer me a space to network with my peers and colleagues.
