Hi, my name is Matt Leszcz. I am from Westlake, Ohio (a suburb on the west side of Cleveland) and went to high school at Saint Ignatius High School in Cleveland, Ohio. In high school I played football and ran track, was part of Student Senate, and was involved in a few different service clubs. In my free time I like to play pickup basketball and football, golf, ski, and hang out with my family and friends. I live with my parents and four siblings, and I come from a family of buckeyes. I am currently studying Mechanical Engineering at the Ohio State University and taking Calculus, Physics, and some first time engineering classes. I am part of the Humanitarian Engineering Scholars, and I am looking forward to using the skills I develop in class to help better the community. I enjoy working with other people on projects, and just being around other people in general. While studying at Ohio Sate, I am hoping to join a few clubs and intramural sports teams. I am not entirely sure what I want to do after college as far as my career, but I am excited by all the possibilities a degree in Mechanical Engineering can bring about.
