From Pointe Shoes to Engineering Paper


My name is Hailey Russell and I'm a junior in the Chemical Engineering Program here at NC State University. I transferred here from UNC Wilmington. Not only am I a chemical engineering major, but I am also seriously considering a concentration in sustainability in chemical engineering. I think it is supremely important to find energy resources that are both renewable, sustainable for the future and has little negative impact on the environment. I pursued chemical engineering in particular because I really enjoy and excel at math and science.


However, engineering was not my only career interest and a young girl. I also loved the art of ballet and have practiced it for 10 years now. I actually attended a boarding school for the arts called UNC School of the Arts. I attended for all four years of high school and it certainly took ballet to a whole new level. Although, I did not end up pursuing a professor ballet career, I still love the art and will always cherish my time spent at my high school.
