My first year at Ohio State was very exciting and I’ve gained a lot of valuable experiences. My two fondest memories of my first year are being accepted as an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant for the Department of Engineering Education and participating in the First Year Advanced Energy Vehicle showcase. Both of these events felt like big accomplishments that I was really excited to share with my friends and family. I use the knowledge and project experience from the AEV showcase while speaking with employers and I am really enjoying being a UTA. The first year engineering series was a lot of fun and I’m glad I can help make it a great experience for the next class of engineers.
