"I became interested in engineering in high school after there was an opportunity to build a solar car for a competition. After helping build the solar car I knew I wanted to be an engineer. I have gained knowledge, leadership skills and friends from engineering so far and can’t wait to grow more in the field."
"Growing up as a kid, I was fascinated with becoming an inventor and understanding how mechanical machines worked. I was in an inventor’s class in elementary school and an engineering class in middle school both which I really enjoyed. As I got older, I was almost scared to become an engineer because of all the hard classes and content I would have to take which almost made me change my mind. But I became and engineer to enhance my knowledge about how mechanical machines operated. My main area is in automotive and aerospace since that is where my passion lies. I have always been told that if you have a
passion for something, you will enjoy your career and strive to learn new things. I also want to encourage
future and current female engineer students to set big
lifetime goals for themselves and help them to reach
their achievements for their passions."

"I am an aspiring material sciences and engineering major, and coming into my first year here at UNT, I had no idea what material sciences was. However, after taking the discovery course my first semester, I fell in love with the subject. I chose to be an engineering major because it leads to so many opportunities and different outlets, and it is a great basis to have. My dad is a computer science engineer and my mom is a biomedical engineer, so I've been surrounded by engineers my whole life. I specifically chose material sciences because it is not as known as the other engineering fields, yet it is just as applicable, and is a growing field in the U.S at the moment. I am beyond excited to delve further into this field of study and see where it leads me."
I guess I could say I've always wanted to do science, while growing up my uncles and aunts always called me Mr. Scientist so that really boosted me to want more and be a "scientist".
Being an engineer has given me new lenses for looking at the world. It has allowed me to see the world and machines from a realistic perspective and question realty against what I have seen in the classroom."
