Welcome to the homework 6 assignment for crsuggs2

Paragraph 1: My name is Chris Suggs, and I am a mechanical engineering major at NC State University. The reason that I chose this major is because I have always been interested in how things work. I very much enjoy getting to experiment with and test ideas relating to the function of various devices and machines. Specifically, I am interested in the automotive applications of mechanical engineering, and would like to one day work for an automotive manufacturer in the design process, or work as an engineer on an auto racing team. For these reasons, I have begun to get involved with the Wolfpack Motorsports team on campus, in an effort to gain experience and apply the knowledge I learn in the classroom.

Paragraph 2: My favorite hobby is playing trumpet. More specifically, playing jazz trumpet. I have been playing for seven years, and been in several all-region and al-state bands, and I plan on minoring in trumpet performance with a concentration in jazz studies while here at NC State. Currently, I am playing solo trumpet in the NC State jazz ensemble 1, and hope to start playing small gigs around Raleigh to make extra money, and have fun, while I am at NCSU. Over the last two years, I have been the lead trumpet player with the Triangle Youth Jazz ensemble, and have also had the opportunity to play on occasion with the Heart of Carolina Jazz Orchestra. I have also recently had the opportubity to perform with professional artists such as tenor saxophonist Houston Person, and Grammy nominated jazz vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant, among others.
