What is the RISE area of interest during your first year and why?: 

For my first year, I plan on fulfilling the Instruction requirement by being an ENES 102 TF. I started as a TF last year prior to joining RISE and I knew it was something that I wanted to continue with. I think it's a very fulfilling job to work with the Freshman who take ENES 102 and help others get their start on their Engineering career.

What is the RISE area of interest during your second year and why?: 
Next year I think I am interested in getting a Research opportunity. This is because I've never had the opportunity to do Research before, even though I think it could be a really good experience. I think it would be interesting to try and answer a question that's never been answered before, and that I would really like the challenge.
What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 
Outside of RISE, I am also the Vice President of the Society of Women Engineers, a sister of Alpha Omega Epsilon, and a Clark School Ambassador.
What is your cool engineering experience?: 

Last summer I was a camp counselor here. One day we took the students to Start Up Shell's 3D printing room, and the day we visited they had just finished up an interview with a newspaper. To make the printers look busy for the interview, they had set all of them to print testudo statues. By the time we got there, the room was covered in them, and I got to take one home for free.
