I grew up watching my father who was also a civil engineer. From a very young age, I have always been interested in innovation, construction, and the entire process of infrastructure development. As I continued on to college, I had the opportunity to see the various engineering degrees and what differentiates them from one another. I went with civil engineering because I found this profession to have a great impact on society. Plus, I was very good at structural analysis and that paved my way into the structural engineering specialization.
