I was inspired to pursue Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE) after seeing how much it impacted my everyday life and how broad the career opportunities are for graduates. For example, most of the products that I use on a daily basis such as soap and cosmetics were in part designed by Chemical and/or Biomolecular engineers! One of the main things that drew me to Illinois was the collaborative atmosphere I saw when I visited. All of the students were eager to help each other and invested in building a community where they could work together. Outside of school, you can find me reading and playing the cello!
