My name is Jaliyah Scott and I am an Engineering First Year major with Industrial Engineering intent. I chose this major because I am interested in making a difference in the International Business world, specifically in the field of manufacturing. I hope to achieve this goal by becoming well versed in business as well as engineering. To do this, I plan to attend graduate school to obtain my MBA in International Business. Once I have obtained both my bachelor's and master's degrees, I will become somewhat of a consultant to international business that use sweatshops as a means of producing their products. In reality, my ultimate goal is to get rid of as many sweatshops as possible and replace them with a product that is efficient enough to manufacture products at an affordable cost that can also be easily navigated by workers; in that way, jobs will not be lost, but workers will have a legitimate wage or salary.

If there is one thing that I have learned from the two years that I have been dancing, it is that those who are not dancers do not understand what dance means to us. Dancing, to a dancer, is our life line when real life becomes to hard to bare, the hidden language of our soul, and the most direct way to hear our hearts speak. I've only been dancing for two years, so I have no technical training, lack experience compared to others, and-at one point- looked pretty pathetic when dancing next to other hip hop dancers that had been dancing for years. However, I love the thrill that comes with learning a new skill, the bruises that come from any variation of floor work, the soreness that comes from hours of pushing my body to its limits, and the aura of feeling complete when I master a new combination. Most of all, though, I love seeing where I came from to witnessing where I am now, seeing my progress and knowing all of the obstacles that I have overcome by getting to where I am today, and the pure happiness I feel anytime I step foot on a dance floor and can be whoever I want to be and not who I am expected to be. One of my favorite dance quotes of all time is by Martha Graham and it reads "There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique." Dance has not only showed me that I can be more than what I thought I could be and that I could accomplish more than what I thought I could, but it has taught me that I really and truly am unique, purely one of kind, and I should take pride in knowing that no matter what I think or anyone else believes, I am me.
