My name is Richa Patel. I am currently a first year engineering student with the intention to go into aerospace engineering. I'd also hopefully like to incorporate political science into my education somehow as either another major or minor. I chose aerospace engineering because of my heavy interest in flight and space. Political science became an interest to me when I found I enjoyed reading on law and policy. I hope to go to law school after my undergraduate education. With my combined interests, I hope to pursue a career in either space policy or patent law.

My current favorite hobby is playing the piano. I took lessons as a child, but eventually quit. I later took lessons again when I started high school, stopping again after freshman year. Finally, I decided to pursue it without lessons and now try to play on a regular basis. The ability to create music has always been something that inspired me, and I'm glad to have found that in the piano.
