Ms. 2+2 ENG Entrepreneur
I am a deferred admission program applicant who is a first-generation engineer with a BS and MS in industrial and systems engineering. I have internship experiences working in the consulting sector and for the largest oil and gas company in the world. I am very enthusiastic about the impact I have been able to have on my college campus, specifically through serving as Chapter President of my large student organization. When I was 18 years old my family adopted teenage twins who did not come from a good educational district. These new additions to my family really opened my eyes to the educational opportunity gaps apparent in our nation. Because of this, 2 years ago I founded an educational software start-up which aims to close this gap for disadvantaged students. This project has truly been a labor of love for me and I would like to run it full-time in the future.
