I have a passion for service that is deeply ingrained in my life, and I want to maintain this passion after graduation. However, I am also excited to apply my mechanical engineering degree to industry. To pursue everything I want to do is difficult on an engineering career path; my plan has been to complete an industry career, and then continue to service work.
I want to be a ServiceCorps Fellow because I want to make a difference in the world right away, and this program will allow me to do just that. I have the energy and the passion to dedicate a year to service, and the technical knowledge to help any non-profit in need of that skill set. My personal fulfillment comes from helping others and from the knowledge that my efforts are directed toward something that matters. As a ServiceCorps Fellow, I would be driven by opportunity to improve lives and the world, and I would be equally motivated to continue into an industry career, with newfound energy from growing through service.
I am passionate about improving our world. When I heard about ServiceCorps I knew this was a golden opportunity. This year will give me the ability to better my community and in so doing, develop as a person. Although this program is only a year, I hope to continue in this mindset with a life rooted in community service and personal growth.
I graduated from Georgia Tech in December 2016 with a Mechanical Engineering degree and an Engineering & Business minor. In my free time, I love hiking, throwing pottery, and painting. I have been passionate about service my entire life, and pursue this passion wherever I go. For example, my biggest on campus involvement was a service sorority, Omega Phi Alpha. Through this organization, I served the Atlanta community doing everything from planting trees to tutoring at the local Boys & Girls Club, working with homelessness initiatives to so much more. I am incredibly excited to apply my engineering degree in GE's OMLP rotational program, but am even more excited to first use the skills gained with my degree positively in service.
