What do you most expect to gain from being part of the Noblitt Scholars program:
The Noblitt Scholars program will allow me to gain valuable resources, in addition to an engineering education, such as mentorships, internships, and lifelong friendships, that I need to not only excel as a student but as a growing leader in the community.
How do you spend your free time?
I like to spend my free time dancing. I started dancing at a local studio when I was three years old, and I quickly discovered my love for dancing, especially tap. I love to perform because it is both equal parts of art and exercise all in one.
What is the nerdiest thing you do?
I was an active team member and coach in VEX Robotics during high school. Aside from my robotics experiences, I get very excited when I finally solve tough math or engineering problems. You will see me with the biggest smile on my face with a proud feeling of accomplishment.
How do you hope to change the world with the knowledge you’ll gain at Rose-Hulman?
I hope to change the world by using the knowledge I gain at Rose-Hulman to improve someone’s quality of life. I have watched people I love suffer, including a friend with epilepsy and family members with cancer, autoimmune disorders, and polio. I want to use my skills to be an innovator in the medical field by researching ideas and developing products that will ultimately give someone more time to live.
How did you know Rose was right for you?
I knew Rose-Hulman was right for me the moment that I saw that 'community’ means family. I witnessed students and faculty willingly helping one another; the collaboration and dedication to successful learning will not be found anywhere else. On my first campus visit, I felt like a valued member before I was an official student. I knew that Rose was the place where I was going to be accepted, and they were going to help me in every way.
