Major: Materials Science & Engineering
Hometown: Elmhurst, IL

My Involvement with SWE: I was one of the ETC Co-chairs, and am now the Professional Development Officer. Whether you’ve been with SWE for a while or you are a new member, go for an officer position. It is incredibly valuable and there are people to guide you through it as you take up more responsibilities. Even if you are not elected at first, taking the initiative to run for a position is great in itself in that you are taking a risk and practicing your public speaking skills! Everyone has something to contribute so don’t be afraid to try.
