Making My Dreams Come True

A photograph of Kenny, a Cornell Engineering studentI wrote my college application essays almost four years ago about wanting to shoot for the stars. My childhood was punctuated by space missions: Discovery’s Return to Flight, Cassini-Huygens, and New Horizons. In Cornell Engineering’s project teams and work co-op program, I saw a place that would enable me to fulfill my dream of becoming an engineer in the new Space Race.

Cornell: My Childhood Dream

A photograph of Cornell Engineering student SydneyI’ve known about Cornell since I was little. From when I first learned about careers to about sophomore year of high school, I wanted to be a veterinarian, and attending Cornell Veterinary School was my dream.

Barton Hall, the location of Club Fest, is filled with students.

Finding Community at Cornell

Moving into your residence hall at a university with over 14,000 students can be somewhat overwhelming, especially if you are coming from somewhere far from Ithaca, New York like I did. Moving from warm and sunny Phoenix, Arizona to upstate New York was quite a big culture shift for me and I was worried about finding a group where I could fit in.Photo of two students standing in soccer goal
