Why you choose Cornell Engineering?
My dad was a Cornell engineer who put Cornell on my radar very early, and told such great stories of his time here that I had to check it out! The more I looked into Cornell Engineering, the more convinced I became that it was right for me with all of its incredible educational, extracurricular, and groundbreaking researching opportunities.

What is your favorite thing about Cornell Engineering?
I love the community of dedicated, helpful, and hard-working people I have met in Cornell Engineering. It would be difficult to find a more devoted and talented group!

What do you do outside of the classroom?
I am involved very extensively in extracurriculars. I am an Engineering Ambassador, I perform research in the Fischbach Lab, I am president of Engineers for a Sustainable World project team, a Leadership Assistant with a local hospital volunteering organization, and on the board for Tau Beta Pi (the national Engineering Honor Society). I also work as a tutor for freshman and sophomore engineering classes, and love dancing on Rise Dance Group!
