Welcome to a page all about me!

Hi! My name is Allison Wright. I'm a freshman at NC State University with an intended major in biomedical engineering. The reason that I chose biomedical engineering is because I want to work with medical technology. I'm still undecided about which of the specializations in BME I'd like to do, but I think I'd like to do biomechanics and work with prosthetics and joint repairs.

My dream job would be with a medical device company in RTP or somewhere in North Carolina. I'd get to work on researching and developing new devices, or improving on old ones. At this job, I'd get to use the things I learned here in the engineering program at State, but I'd be surrounded by people with different backgrounds and be able to continually expand my knowledge. I'd like to stay in North Carolina because there would be lots of other STEM companies with other opportunities available, if I needed to switch jobs.
