Growing up, I knew I always wanted to go into engineering. I loved math and science, and my dad was an engineer, always showing us new things and getting us interested in the STEM field. It wasn’t until my senior year of high school though that I finally settled on Electrical Engineering. In my AP Physics class, we had a unit devoted to Electricity and Magnetism and I loved how everything was black and white and how tangible it could be. It was also the unit that I did the best in all year!
In May of 2017, I graduated from NC State University with a degree in Electrical Engineering. All throughout my college career, I knew I wanted to be an electrical engineer, but had no idea what I wanted to do with it. I had the opportunity, through one of my classes, to check out solar fields and different power companies, and I knew that that was for me. The problem was figuring out how I wanted to apply that, because I wanted to be able to make a difference in the world and I wanted a job that would help me achieve that. A few months before graduation, I came to interview at Hallam, and the rest is history. So far I’ve seen so many different things and been to places I would never have to chance to go to, such as a Veteran’s Hospital and a waste water treatment plant. I am excited to see where this company can bring me next, what else I can see and learn, and hopefully make a difference.
