A glimpse of me and why I joined Excel

Where are you from?

Although I was born originally in Coon Rapids Minnesota I do not call it my home. I would have to say that Sugar Land, Texas is my home. I mean I've lived there for 16 years and I've had many interesting experiences there!

What is your major? And why did you chose it?

Mechanical Engineering.

From an early age I knew that I had to create something, either from messing with Legos to building structures for the garden outside of the house.

I know what you're thinking though. Why don't you just go and be an inventor and mechanic. Well I'll tell you why.

Because you can only build the most intricate and significant inventions and structures with the power of Math and Physics.

Why did you decide to become a part of the Excel/Compass?

I wanted a more tailor made learning than in a traditional lecture hall in Math and Science. Also with this program there opportunities for actually being creative and exercising the mind, opportunities that I cannot refuse.

How do you think Excel/Compass will help you succeed in the first year of College?

I think that it will help me in more ways than one.

One- because I am a little behind on math for my major, it gives me an opportunity to go at a little more accelerated pace to get caught up.

Two- The excel program will help me connect with more people in the STEM field so I can expand my social network.

Three- I hope to get opportunities for internships and special training to help me get a head-start in the workforce.

Is there one unique fact that people want to know about?

I would have to say that, I collect rare and almost borderline unconventional music to give inspiration to my guitar playing.
