My name is Yoshihiro Obata, I am a first year student, and I am chemical engineering intended. I'm not quite sure why I chose this major, I had a great AP chemistry teacher in high school so that may be part of the reason. I also want to be challenged because many things are easy for me and I hear chemical engineering is quite difficult. Honestly your guess as to why I chose chemical engineering is as good as mine but I just take things step by step and I know if I put my mind to it and stay motivated I'll be able to do it. I know why I want to do engineering though. There is a film I recommend and is my favorite called "The Wind Rises". This movie is about a japanese aerospace engineer who designs the zero plane. It highlights the personal and political struggles he, as well as his nation, faces during WWII. I say give it a watch, it is very motivating.

I have many hobbies because if I have a whim I try to at least try it once and put my full effort into it, but by far my most long term hobby is Super Smash Bros. I have been playing for over half my life and have transitioned into a competitive player now. I am learning more and more every day about strengthening my fundamentals and incorperating mindgames into neutral stance. I like to think I'm really good because I'm stylish in my play, but I have a long way to go. I've met so many awesome people here at NCSU that play smash and I hope to meet many more.

Smashboards My Resume
  1. To order my favorite pizza first you have to call and pizza place.
  2. When you get them on the phone you ask them for a list of all the toppings they offer. You didn't hear them quite well the first time so you ask them to repeat all the toppings for you one more time.
  3. After step 2 you ask for a regular cheese pizza.
  4. When the pizza guy calls get your pizza and enjoy your pizza
