Spring semester is off to a great start! I can’t believe my last year of college will be coming up so soon!

This semester, I am taking three engineering classes and two theatre classes that will go towards my Dramatic Arts minor. After last semester, I am so excited to get a bit of a break from all of my hard engineering classes and take some time to hone my acting skills. Also last semester, I had to dedicate a good amount of time to searching for summer internships and attending the career development workshops, fairs, and information sessions hosted on campus. I am so happy to announce that my plans for this summer are finally set in stone, and I will be interning at The Aerospace Corporation where I’ll be working on structural dynamics this summer (I’ll probably write about this more later)!

I am trying to redirect a lot of my energy this semester towards investing in my health and wellness since I have a lot more time on my hands now that my classes are less difficult and my internship search is over. I have been eating extremely healthy and sticking to a strict workout routine. I have also been trying to dedicate a lot of my time towards my relationships and remaining active in USC’s Rocket Propulsion lab since we’re hoping to launch our newest rocket this semester.

I am so excited to see what this semester holds and to continue documenting my journey in these blogs! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
