“The Grand Challenge Scholars Program has helped me to synthesize my many unique college experiences and endeavors into a cohesive vision for the future of engineering. It offered me the opportunity to build on my sustainability-focused environmental engineering and economics coursework by encouraging my extension into entrepreneurship and social action. At a time when engineering problems may seem overabundant and endlessly complex, this program provided me a better understanding of where potential solutions intersect and where our efforts are best placed. As I start my career in engineering, I am grateful to the Grand Challenge Scholars Program for setting my sights on the greater goal of improving health, joy, sustainability, and security for all.”
