A quote that inspires you

“No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.” -Taylor Swift

An interesting fact that is not known about you

I often fill my free time with artistic activities like embroidering, playing my piano, or strumming my ukulele. I’ve embroidered a few custom t-shirts based on my favourite songs and TV shows, and I hope to expand the collection soon by crafting some for friends and family!

What are your future aspirations or dreams?

I expect my aspirations to grow and evolve as I gain work experience, but I hope to work with robotic systems in the future and venture into entrepreneurship as well. I have always been fascinated by the work being done in the aerospace industry, and it would be a dream come true to work on and design the revolutionary rovers that will help us learn multitudes about distant planets.
