Architectural Engineering / Science Education May 2020

Short-Term Goals

My short-term physical goals include maintaining my workout schedule and healthy eating habits. I love to cook and hope to use eating healthy as a way to expand on the dishes I know how to make.

My intellectual goals include keeping my GPA up and maintain my standing on the Dean's List. In addition to this I will keep up my hard work towards my degree in Architectural Engineering and my teaching certification. I also hope that over the course of my final year I will have the opportunity to read more and find out what I am planning to do in the future!

As the RA for my sorority I hope to foster a great housing environment and encourage sisters to joyously live each day with me. I hope to cultivate stronger relationships with my sisters and get an opportunity to have a one on one experience with each of the members.

I am hoping to be productive in my studies as I will be taking the GRE and hope to do very well! I also hope to complete my graduate school applications and to be accepted into a good program for Sustainable Design and Construction.

Long-Term Goals

My long term goal is to graduate with my degree in Architectural Engineering as well a obtain my Teaching Certificate in the sciences, specifically physics. After graduation, my goal is to attend graduate school and then enter the field to develop sustainable buildings with a focus in electrical components. Further after my career I hope to return to the workforce as a teacher and creating a learning environment that utilizes hands on activities and makes it easy to ask questions and get involved. As a teacher I will have summers off and hope to utilize them for many different things such as volunteering, traveling, meeting new people, deepening already made relationships, and finding out new things about myself.

I hope to one day have a family and enjoy every aspect of my life, living each day to its full potential. I hope to improve my skills with the Spanish language - both written and oral. I also want to travel with my friends and family. My goal is to visit at least twenty countries, and all 50 states. I hope to go bungee jumping, skydiving, and on many other adventures to confront my fears.
