I’m a big Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Doctor Who fan. In other words, I’m a nerd. I love music, and Hans Zimmer is my hero. He wrote the scores for movies like Inception, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The DaVinci Code, in case you didn’t know. I love Disney movies, reading, traveling, and doing all sorts of crafty stuff. I like to help others, especially with schoolwork. I have a mild addiction to Dr. Pepper. What inspires to me to work hard is my love of learning and my dream to travel the world someday.
Campus and Community InvolvementI played tennis on the varsity team in High School and volunteered at an elementary school tutoring 3rd graders senior year. Before that, I volunteered at church every Tuesday for two years. Freshman year I was in marching band and was a part of the Freshman All-Region Band. I was also a part of Key Club, National Honor Society, and was the president of my Venture Crew (part of Boy Scouts of America) for two years.
Awards and Honors
I was ranked 11th in my class and graduated Magna Cum Laude. I also received the honors open house scholarship from UH.
Study abroad is definitely something I’m interested in. I love to travel, and the place I want to go most in the world is New Zealand. I would also love Australia or Europe. I would love to learn in a new setting where I can explore new places and see new sights. I feel like it would make me more confident to do anything on my own.
I don’t know what type of research I’ll be interested in, but I think I could easily become passionate about any kind of research. I’d probably like to stay in my major though.
I am intending to get at least a masters degree, but I don’t know yet. I don’t yet have any career plans other than to be an engineer somewhere!
