Welcome to Shelby's Website

My name is Shelby Rose, I am currently a freshman majoring in Polymer and Color Chemistry with the college of textiles but I hope to switch into Chemical Engineering. Chemistry has always been a huge passion of mine and I hope to use what I learn at NC State to improve the quality of life for people living in both comfort and poverty. I became interested in chemistry in high school when I took AP Chemistry with my teacher Mrs. Soto. It was a chance to apply knowledge in a way that had tangible and observable results and that paired with a natural proficiency for science drove me to see chemistry as a viable career option. Currently I am enrolled in the second level of organic chemistry and although extremely challenging I find the course and the lab to be both fun and interesting. I feel motivated by this course to continue my pursuit of a Chemical Engineering degree from State.

I have many hobbies but my most long standing and enjoyable one would have to be reading. Throughout most of my life I spent almost all of my free time reading anything I could get my hands on. It all started with Harry Potter, after the first book in fourth grade I was hooked. Soon after finishing what was published of the series I moved on to the Inheritance Cycle and other fantasy novels. I enjoy reading fiction the most, there's just something more enthralling about reading impossible things as opposed to Non-Fiction.
