Member of the Month
1. What does Engineers Without Borders mean to you?
My interest in engineering is to use the skills and knowledge I have gained in the classroom and apply it to help solve problems in parts of the world where they might not have the means to do so. Therefore I joined EWB as I feel as a group they best represent the area of engineering I want to work in.
2. What motivated you to become so active?
I am an international student and I have been part of several projects working in Malawi with groups from Scotland so coming from that background I wanted to see what similar groups were doing in the USA and help in any way I can.
3. What contribution to Engineers Without Borders are you most proud of?
There are a lot of very passionate people in Cal Polys EWB chapter who have spent huge amounts of their time here working towards the project in Nicaragua so any way I can assist them in completing their project is work I would be proud of.
4. What is one specific goal you want the club to accomplish this year?
I would like to see the club start work on the Nicaragua project before the end of this academic year.
5. What has been your biggest takeaway from the club?
The members of the club have been incredibly welcoming which has made it very easy to get involved and stay engaged, as an international student who is new to California it is great to have so many people eager to get new members involved in their EWB chapter.
