What are your majors? Mechanical engineering

Expected graduation: May 2022

What inspired your interest in the environment and/or community? I grew up in the “environmental age.” The importance of recycling was always emphasized in school, I saw the mass transition to more energy efficient lighting fixtures and other electronics, I saw the importance of moving toward renewable sources of energy. I also learned that the largest two hurdles toward both energy independence and a sustainable future are a lack of technology, and the politics of it. I have no patience for the politics, but I believe with a career in engineering, I can aid in the first great hurdle.
