B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, 2023
During my time at RPI, I was a part of many active and varied organizations. As an upperclassman, I put my all into giving back to all these clubs that defined my college experience. Rensselaer Running Club was founded during my freshmen year, and I served as the Event Coordinator for two years: planning, managing, and getting our members to and from local races safely. I have also been a member of the RPI Ballroom Dance Team since my freshmen year and served as the Competition Coordinator in 2022. Planning an intercollegiate Ballroom competition in a post-Covid world came with many roadblocks, but it was ultimately worth it to give many students a chance to dance after a long time away from the sport.

(http://engineeringambassadors.union.rpi.edu/live/) Being able to empower younger students with the possibilities of engineering is an amazing experience, and I was honored to recruit the next cohort of EAs to continue this mission for future years.
