We passively engage in leadership all of the time as we constantly have influence on the people and world around us. That’s why it is so important to become active agents of leadership that has a positive impact on others. At NC State, we truly “think and do,” actively putting knowledge into practice through research, leadership, and service in order to impact the world around us. While a student here at NC State, I have been surrounded by leaders that have inspired me to take every opportunity possible to be an active leader in activities that impact the Wolfpack at home and contribute to serving others globally.
I am a currently a junior in Chemical Engineering and in Polymer and Color Chemistry and am minoring in English. I am also a Goodnight and Centennial Scholar, a member of the University Honors Program, Assistant Editor of the Journal of Reflective Inquiry (JORI), and serve as the Lead Ambassador for the Institute for Emerging Issues/CSLEPS Ambassador Program in which I am working to develop an educational program that encourages civic engagement through technology. I am additionally one of the Co-Chairs for Service Raleigh, an undergraduate representative for the University Standing Committees on International Programs and on Student Health, and a Chancellor’s Aide. As a three-time intern with NASA, I also am a mentor to middle school students through the NASA GIRLS and BOYS Program and am active in research for the Colleges of Textiles and Engineering through NC Space Grant.
I have been impacted by many leaders here at NC State. It is my hope that my leadership roles have had a similar impact on my community. Leader of the Pack will allow me to broaden that impact and to continue giving back to the university that has given so much to me.
