Welcome to my College Website!

Hello, my name is Trisha Hess. I am a first year student in engineering with an aerospace intent. Both the flight and space aspects of aerospace are very interesting to me. I would love to learn about how planes and rockets work and hopefully use that information to then learn how to fly. I like doing hands on work and getting to actually work on building and repairing planes seems like a great opportunity to exercise that.


While I don't have one specific dream job, I would like to work for the government in some function. I'm specifically interested in working for Naval Aviation. The Fleet Readiness Center East is in North Carolina, and I plan to apply for an internship there. I'm also interested in working for NASA. A long term goal of mine is to at some point become an astronaut.
