“I applied to GCSP when I was interning with NASA Mission Control in Houston. The program motivated me to push myself into other interests on campus, leading me to participate in the Engineering Entrepreneurship Senior Design program, led by Marshall Brain, the founder of HowStuffWorks.com. From there my team ended up representing NC State at the ACC InventurePrize pitch competition against all other ACC schools. Upon graduation, I applied for and was awarded a Miller Fellowship, granting me a stipend to continue developing Portal upon graduation. I never would have gotten to this point in my entrepreneurial career without the Grand Challenge Scholars, and I look forward to applying the lessons I'm learning here to the Challenges themselves.”
