I have gradually migrated from the south, going to high school in Virginia and finally attending college in Pittsburgh. I am a mechanical engineering major.

My desire is to become a social engineer. I want to use what I learn at CMU to positively impact society. I'm infatuated with the idea of living a sustainable life. In all aspects of life people need to be sustainable- from the environment to their finances. That's the kind of mentality I want to instill in people. My mission at CMU is to gain the skills I need to reach out to people.
