I’m excited to be a WIE ambassador because I love meeting prospective and admitted students and sharing with them all the great opportunities at Illinois. Many people have helped me throughout my college journey, so I enjoy having the opportunity to do the same for future students! The past two years I was an Engineering Learning Assistant (ELA) and taught Engineering Orientation to the incoming freshmen. This was an invaluable position for me because I developed my own leadership skills while getting to know and help the newest members of our University. As an ELA, I also got the opportunity to travel abroad. This immersive experience was absolutely unforgettable, and it helped me and my fellow ELAs improve and develop meaningful curriculum guides.
