Having the opportunities that my mentor Dr. Robin Goldberg-Glen gave me—to speak at two symposiums as well as a conference with a full crowded room—helps me with networking and connections and puts me out of my comfort zone.

The professors in SBA were phenomenal, and the staff in the athletic center were also amazing. The culture that was being built made my experience so special and made me feel included and welcomed although I came in two years late to the program.

Before doing this summer research experience, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. My experience on a research project opened me up to aerospace engineering.
