Global Challenge: Sustainability

The unique, hands-on learning experiences put what we learned in class into practice and helped solidify my interest in the environmental field. From that day forward, I became drawn to environmental issues and knew that I wanted to become a civil engineer.



Originally from sunny Southern California, I am an undergraduate student at New York University studying Civil Engineering. At Tandon, I work as a peer writing tutor to help develop student writing skills in lab reports, research papers, and essays. I also work as a TA in our beloved Makerspace, aiding students with any personal or course-related projects, in addition to hosting educational training and workshops in our Design Lab. For any incoming first years, you might also see me around campus as a Welcome Leader, helping to create a positive impact for new and returning students during Welcome Week. As a Transmission Line Engineering intern at National Grid, I learned the ins and outs of how electricity gets to consumers, as well as the often unseen work that goes into maintaining and improving our aging power grid infrastructure. Outside work and school, you can often find me either relaxing or lap swimming at the pool.
