What has your involvement with DEID looked like?
I am the Fundraising Manager for this year’s DEID project at Bolivia. I have attended weekly meetings, taken the Bridge Introductory course, as well as the Fundraising course in order to gain more knowledge about this project as a whole.
Why are you a part of DEID?
I am a part of DEID because I think it is a really involved club in which everyone can contribute in some way or form. I am also hoping to become a future engineer, and by being a part of DEID, and hopefully being able to travel at least one summer with DEID, I hope to become more aware of what an engineer does as well as support communities in need with the solutions our team has personally come up with.
What you are most excited for about your project or DEID?
I am most excited to become a part of an actual, hands-on project. Since I have never had much experience with engineering, I am excited to witness the entire journey of the bridge, from the initial design planning to the eventual construction of the bridge ourselves. I find it very fascinating that an entire community of people in Bolivia will be using this bridge that our team will be designing every step of the way.
I like to eat my cereal milk first then the cereal on top.
