My name is Michaela Bate. I am a freshman at NC State University. I am currently studying with an intent to CODA into Materials Science and Engineering. I chose this concentration because materials make up literally everything we have in the world, and getting to improve and make new materials is fascinating to me. I want to take some electives in Textiles so I can learn more about knitted, woven, and non-woven fabrics.

My favorite hobby is to play music. Music is so beautiful;it can change your perspective on the world and open your eyes (and ears) to new things. Music is its own language, and I am so happy I can understand some of it. I enjoy singing, playing viola and ukulele, and learning finger picking on guitar. One of my favorite places to play music is in the stairwell of my dorm because the acoustics fill the entire place and it's a very uplifting feeling.
