“The NAE Grand Challenge Scholars program played a major role in my transfer into the school of engineering. As a freshman, this program resonated with my interest in emerging technologies and desire to make a meaningful impact. It was a four year journey consisting of late night house courses, the frustration of independent research, and the emotional highs and lows of working on a small life science startup.
The program was instrumental in orienting my path toward continued learning, entrepreneurship, and excitement for creative solutions requiring the alignment of technology, public policy, and industry. These lessons have guided me in my day-to-day at HUB Corporation, where we service customers aiming to solve global challenges in a wide range of fields including aerospace, industrial automation, medical, automotive, and telecommunication.”
