For me, chemical engineering was a stepping stone to learning more about energy and how we can produce it on a greater scale. When I got to college, I asked professors about their fields, especially ones whose research fell in line with alternative energy and electricity. Their answers really spoke to me. I knew I wanted to do research, and despite my lack of experience, a faculty member took me onto his team. Professionally, I want to attend graduate school to continue building the foundation that I have now, then I want to take the skills that I have into the industry.

Texas A&M holds countless opportunities that you can get as an Aggie. Before I even began my freshman year, I was able to travel to Italy with a group of other incoming freshman Aggies for a leadership seminar. Sophomore year, I was able to take on a leadership role in the largest student chapter of Society of Women Engineers in the country. Even better, I was also able to land a co-op that year at the largest student-run career fair in the country. An inspiring experience for me has been this past summer as I had the opportunity to go on a study abroad in Scotland. I spent three weeks at the University of Aberdeen studying thermodynamics with 12 other Aggies. We had a lot of fun getting to explore the country.

It’s incredible to feel that passion for Texas A&M once you get here, and I wish that everyone could experience it. I chose my major because I lost 70% of my eyesight in my left eye for unknown reasons in the seventh grade. I wanted to find a major that not only would help me have the ability to one day rebuild my eye, but also to fuel my passion for inventing my ideas in my invention book. My major fit everything I ever dreamed of and I’m excited to pursue it in the future. After graduation, I hope to obtain a job working for Google, Amazon, Microsoft, or some big company along those lines. I hope to pursue obtaining a leadership position and work my way up the career ladder.

Growing up, I never thought I would end up at Texas A&M. It’s so foreign to anything I was used to. Looking back, there is nowhere else I would rather be. With the combination of first-class academics, unparalleled athletics, traditions and the most welcoming culture I have ever been a part of, I can say unbiasedly that there is no place like Texas A&M. Take advantage of these opportunities. After I graduate, I plan on pursuing a career in energy production, get married, and have a whole slew of kids and spend the rest of my life living large in Texas!

There are many avenues and resources for success at A&M, so take initiative and reach out to people in need of help, advice, or someone to talk to. I’ve learned that taking care of yourself goes beyond just eating healthy or sleeping well. Sometimes, things such as studying outside of your dorm/room, for example, can have a big impact on your mentality.

I cannot think of one singular, favorite experience here at Texas A&M and that is because every time I am with a fellow Aggie studying, hanging out, working on a program for campus, mentoring or any other event, it completely redefines “favorite” and humbles me. I chose to major in chemical engineering because I have always been interested in the processes of how things work and are made. I am also interested in how to make processes more energy-efficient for the future world. Eventually I plan to work for about 20 years in the oil and natural gas industry, chemical processing, or the pharmaceutical industry, then retire and teach chemistry or engineering at a high school level. It is this goal that keeps pushing me.

Growing up, I was always extremely fascinated when my dad would sit next to me and code on his laptop. I always had a preconceived notion that coding was something that was boring; however, seeing all the different colors that would show up on the software suite intrigued me. This inspired me to take a computer course during high school. I enjoyed the problem-solving aspect of coding and decided to pursue a career in computer science.

I chose to major in chemical engineering because it lets me essentially explore anything. Texas A&M’s obviously known for a prestigious engineering program, but it’s also known for its connections and network. There’s isn’t a better feeling than knowing that I’m receiving an amazing education, but also not having doubt that I will be able to obtain a job post-graduation that I will be able to use this knowledge. Every person I meet is so extraordinary and pushes me to not only be a better engineer, but also use my degree for the better good of the world. Being a fish camp counselor and welcoming freshmen into this amazing university, as well as joining engineering ambassadors to give prospective students an inside of what engineering is like have by far been my favorite involvements.

Growing up, my childhood was filled with countless illustrations and books about space and the cosmos. As I got older, my fascination turned into a professional interest. Instead of merely learning about it, I wanted to be a part of the community that explored it. Texas A&M stresses the importance of always sticking together, to never be afraid of asking questions, and quite frankly - growth. The professors always stress that "failure is okay,” because at the end of the day, it is a learning experience that one can grow from. When I leave Texas A&M, I want to work with a major aerospace corporation, developing technologies that will propel us onward and outward into the great expanse of space.

Texas A&M is a perfect university for students looking for a top-tier research university within engineering. My favorite opportunity at Texas A&M so far is being able to study abroad my first year! It was one of the best times of my life and it impacted my life for the better. Personally, I chose to major in electrical engineering because being able to learn more about logic gates and how to implement them on the breadboards. In the future, I want to go to medical school or graduate school to work with a nonprofit organization either in engineering or medicine.

College is hands down the most enjoyable four years of your life. Contrary to my first point though, I’d tell you that this isn't high school anymore and so we "work hard, play hard.” Everyone at Texas A&M will find the place where they are able to truly grow and develop themselves personally, professionally and socially. No matter where you go to school, you will get a great engineering degree and find a job. But what makes this place so special is the people and the culture that get you out of bed to go to that 8 a.m. class. The people you will meet and the opportunities you'll get here are second to none. It really is a spirit that can ne'er be told.

One of the biggest things that I’ve learned here at Texas A&M is that you can’t just be an engineer. You have to branch out. Texas A&M doesn’t give handouts, but when you work, you’ll see the rewards and experiences that open the world up to you. I’ve loved getting to be an engineering ambassador. You don’t need to have the best resumé, just the best heart for the job. I chose my major because I love working on projects and being able to see what can make me more efficient, and how it lets me be the middleman between business and engineering. The department at this university has given me practical skills that I have been able to use for my co-op with Disney and an internship with Kraft Heinz. After graduating, I hope to earn a master’s in engineering or technology.
