I would describe myself as a tinkerer. I am fascinated by how things work and the science and math that is integrated to develop everyday objects. In the past few years I have built my own gumball machine, electromagnetic Morse code system, and several robots! My interests compel me to pursue the field of engineering so that I can improve technology and make enhance biomedical facilities.
My parents immigrated to the United States with the hope that I would utilize my education to improve society and give back to my community. When I began to study physics, I realized that I could join an organization called “Engineers Without Borders” and improve sanitation facilities abroad as a college student. Thus, my first step in pursuing engineering would allow me to make real improvements in the lives of many people around the world!
As a female in engineering, I am privileged to provide services to my community in a field that is under represented by women. In order to do so, I would like to not only pursue my education in Biomedical Engineering, but I would also enjoy participating in research involving nucleic acid engineering and microbial fuel cells; development in these areas would enhance our ability to renew energy and decrease the prevalence of several fatal diseases. In conclusion, if I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would be a tinkerer and use my knowledge to improve the quality of life for humans around the world.
