Why did you choose to come to Penn State? I chose to come to Penn State because of its amazing engineering programs. I was also very influenced by its size, sports, and atmosphere. THON was another big reason I wanted to come to Penn State.

What has been your best memory as an engineering student? As a sophomore I had the ability to go to an engineering conference in Budapest, Hungry and that was an amazing experience.

What advice would you give a first-year engineer? It is okay to struggle in some of your classes just make sure you reach out for help. We have all been there.

What do you plan to do after graduation? I plan to hopefully get a job with a company I love, in a city that I love, using all of the knowledge I have learned here at Penn State.

What has been your best experience outside of engineering at Penn State? My best experience outside of engineering has definitely been my involvement in THON. Being able to give back to such and incredible cause is truly indescribable.
