About me

I am currently a freshman at NC State University, and I am planning to major in Civil Engineering with a minor in Environmental Science. My focus within civil engineering will be water resources and costal engineering. I am on track to graduate with my bachelors degree in the spring of 2020, and I have not yet decided whether or not I will pursue a masters degree.


Why Civil?

I chose to pursue a degree in civil engineering because I'm passionate about water accessibility and quality for impoverished nations. Water is so fundamental to every facet of our daily lives and I think this is an area where I can affect change on a large scale. I believe a career in civil engineering will equip me with the skills I need to make a difference.
