Watching the news is depressing. These past months seemingly more than ever, our media is overtaken by killings, racial tension, global conflict, climate change, the list goes on. For a person who cares about the world the question will arise: what should I do? How can I contribute to human flourishing? How do I expand my ability to create impactful change?
Why did I want to study both liberal arts and engineering? I wanted to be able to understand the societal and systemic underpinnings of the problems I wanted to address, like understanding the history of our modern healthcare system, and how it’s really currently structured as disease care, and how can I be part of that change. Liberal arts was my means of discovery, and engineering is my means of action.
Where does my skillset lie? Trifecta – desire to learn, amazing communication & presentation skills, builder mentality. Build quick prototypes to test ideas. I love learning, and embrace each challenge with enthusiasm, grit, and a mission driven perseverance to solve tough challenges.
I don’t have a perfect track record, but what my past does show is that I can learn exponentially, I love learning, and embrace each challenge with enthusiasm, grit, and a mission driven perseverance to solve tough challenges.
