It gave me the confidence to take hold of my life and live it the way I wanted to, rather than continue on a generic path.
What is your story? What doesn't your resume tell us about you?
I feel like I have many interests whether it be art, music, drama, the outdoors etc. A big part of my life thus far has been devoted to finding that balance between it all. It is so easy to get caught up in life and forget what is meaningful to you. I definitely experienced a time some point in college that I realized I wasn't doing what made me happy and satisfied, so once I made the change to focus on what I loved I felt so much more whole.

Describe a personal experience that has directly or indirectly influenced your career path.
So I have committed to working a pharmaceutical engineering position after my graduation in May, with the position starting in August. I decided to go this route because I realized that I wanted to have a positive impact on a large amount of people. Contributing to the production of affordable pharmaceuticals at a company that makes a firm commitment to protecting the environment and helping people who need it feels like I've come full circle.
What is the biggest take-away and/or favorite part of your GREEN Program experience?
The GREEN Program changed my life. It gave me the confidence to take hold of my life and live it the way I wanted to, rather than continue on a generic path. I loved the way GREEN brought nature into the classroom and the classroom into nature, without us even realizing it. It all felt so organic that the development I went through was not only the learning of new topics, but learning about myself. In how I learned best, what I wanted out of life, and how to be a better version of myself.
What skills or knowledge did you gain or improve through your experience on The GREEN Program?
Practical Industry IQ, Cross Disciplinary Communication and Collaboration Skills, Public Speaking, Confidence and Self-Awareness, Social Soft Skills, Leadership Development, Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Global and Cultural Competencies, Tolerance
Where and when would you go in a time machine? Why?
I think I would travel to when my grandfather was a kid growing up. I want to see what it was like for him, I think it would give a lot of perspective and make me appreciate what I have more.
