I also like social activities such as partying, meeting new people, and speaking out on different topics. My hobbies include crafting, dancing, running, or even just staying where the people are, where I can communicate and have fun. I want to apply my investigative and extrovertive skills to make contributions to space exploration, all through the aerospace engineering field. I would work towards this goal through deep studies of the engineering career areas, involvement in hands-on design projects, and collaboration with my peers towards common objectives.


SOAR High School

Living in a world that advances in technology every second results in advancements in challenges along the way. As an aspiring product designer, I am constantly advancing my skills in 3D modeling and 3D printing in preparation of these challenges we have yet to face. My passions lie in 3D modeling, 3D printing, and assembly; which all require my full knowledge in advancing with technology synchronously. I am creative, determined, and passionate with my own skillsets and goals of tackling the next challenge of the future.

I am intelligent, introverted, and independent. I enjoy gaming, hanging out with friends, doing good in school, and just having a good time.

I love uplifting my partners. I am a good catalyst for project growth. Ever since I was a young boy I have been interested in civil engineering. The idea of constructing something new compels me. I would be interested in designing windmills, in order to facilitate the extinguishment of burning fossil fuels. I believe this is the right path for me, because since I am good at assisting my coworkers, I would make a good lead engineer.


Pete Knight High School

I'm a creative person who's constantly trying to help others. I enjoy drawing, building, playing sports, and assisting others. I also love to see positive changes in the world, there are many issues within our world and seeing them get solved brings hope to me. I hope to be one of those people that can be a solution to those problems. That's especially why I want to become a mechanical engineer, maybe I can help people with their issues like with their water or food, or in need of solutions of problems within their areas. I just want to provide aid to people who aren't as privilege as others or even provide that aid into bettering our world.


SOAR High School

It is time for change. Our environment is wounded and in need of help. We -- all people -- should be pushing for more sustainable green energy resources and limits on pollutants produced by large manufacturing industries. However, many have proven that they are unwilling to change. So, we must create a solution. I hope to channel my proficiency in 3D modeling, computer programming, drive to do better, and desire to create in order to optimize/innovate on current green energy sources. Years of environmental malpractice has damaged our communities sometimes beyond recognition; we must be willing to be changemakers.

Overall, I think that I could make a big contribution to society, just by utilizing these strengths and interests that I have.
