Jobs & Internships
"I am the first in the family to attend college. I am the first in my entire family, cousins, aunts, uncles, and everyone to graduate as an engineer. As a freshman I decided to major in mechanical engineering, but I was not completely interested in the automobile industry, so I decided to focus on space exploration. As a college junior I applied to a NASA internship and later that year I was accepted and had to take a semester off of school to complete my internship at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in the state of Mississippi. This was a great opportunity for me, and having to make that choice of taking time off of school and moving to a different state where I did not know anyone was tough, but I do not regret it. I learned more about my field of study and met so many wonderful mentors."
