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

I chose Instruction as my area of interest for my first year of RISE because I like to increase my teaching skills and also meet other students in the major. This area will also help me discover how to effectively communicate to students.

What is your cool engineering experience?: 

This past summer I was given the opportunity to intern in California for a fire protection engineer at an engineering and environmental firm, GHD. This major gave me the chance to meet the San Francisco Fire Marshal along with many other fire protection engineers in the area. During my time there, I learned how to perform a hydrant flow test and a fire test in various high tech buildings.
