I'm a dedicated student at the University of Houston with a passion for innovation and problem solving both in and out of the classroom. Starting Fall 2016, I will embark upon senior level classes in my chemical engineering degree plan. I am looking forward to open-ended projects and challenges. My degree enables me to engross in heavy math, science, and physics based courses. As a proud student in the Honors College, I am also skilled in literary writing and technical writing.
As listed in my work experience, I had the great opportunity of guiding high school girls in understanding the various fields of engineering. I taught them code programming in the lab for a fun robotics course, and I also taught them the five steps of problem solving. I lead them in engaging activities intended to apply those five steps. I am also involved in leading similar hands-on activities in several outreach events with the Society of Women Engineers. I have educated groups of students in elementary school, middle school, and high...
