What would be your dream job and how did EMS put you closer to this goal?
My dream job (or goal rather) is making renewable energy more applicable and efficient, turning it into a formidable competitor to fossil fuels.
What made you choose your major?
I actually used to want to be an astronomer. The unknown universe captivated me in a way I thought the measly Earth never could. However, after diving closer into the environmental sciences, I realized the Earth still had its own mysteries and qualities that could be harnessed for the better of the community. When I figured that out, I knew I wanted to be a part of it.
What student organizations and activities are you involved in?
Penn State as a whole offers a wide variety of organizations and activities. I’ve found clubs like Engineers Without Borders, the Penn State Anime Organization, and PSU Victory satisfying all my academic, leisure, and religious inquiries.
What is the best class you have taken at Penn State and why?
While I am sure there is still much ahead for me in respects to classes, my favorite one so far would have to be Math 141G. It offers applicable calculus tailored toward EMS students with many opportunities to delve further into the material.
What is one piece of advice you would give to prospective students?
I would just say enjoy the ride and explore. There is so much to do and to learn when pursuing an education. Don’t forget to breathe and remind yourself of why you’re here.
