Welcome to All About Brooke!

My name is Brooke Orr and I am a freshman in the Paper Science and Engineering program. I chose this major because I was originally interested in chemical engineering. After applying to NC State, I recieved an email about paper science saying I should come to an open house to learn more. The program also gives out many scholarships and, hey, who doesn't want some money? So, I went to the open house and loved everything I heard. Basically, paper science is like chemical engineering applied to paper. You learn about how to take pulp and turn it into paper through a long process. I actually get to experience this process first-hand in the Fall of 2016 because I will be on a co-op in a paper mill!

My favorite hobby would probably be cooking/baking. I love finding new recipes and trying them out. Once I master the recipe, I try to put my own twist on it, experimenting with different ingredients. I think I started cooking when I was little when I always tried to help my mom make dinner. Now, I cook for my family all the time. One of my favorite things to make is chicken empanadas. They are fairly simple to make after chopping up all the ingredients. My favorite dessert to make is a berry trifle.
