What did serving as a Student Leader mean to you? What motivated you to participate?
Serving as a leader was meaningful because I was able to help students though their first college class. I also saw myself as a mentor helping them through the high school to college transition. One of the best parts was learning from them- everything from consistency in grading to improving my communication styles. I was definitely motivated by the encouragement of my leader (Rebecca) and some of the awesome EAS student leaders. They were great role models academically, socially, and personally. I also thought the EAS 140/202 classes were valuable and wanted to facilitate that experience for the next group of students.

A memory that remains with me from my Student Leader days is:
Helping my students prepare for the final wind turbine presentation. I remember reviewing their draft presentations, providing feedback, and doing dry runs with them. I felt just as nervous watching them as I did completing my own presentation in 2012.

Any leaders you'd like to shout-out to?
Rebecca Berg and Laura Godly for encouraging me to take the plunge and become a student leader. Sarah Jacobowitz for all the advice while I transitioned to Electric Boat! She gave me tons of company insights and made moving to New England much, much easier.
