Ambassador Profile

Hello! I am a nuclear engineering student at the University of Tennessee with a minor in reliability and maintainability engineering. I am from Orange, Connecticut, home to the PEZ factory and just outside of the pizza capital of the United States, New Haven. I am a proud member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Incorporated, the National Society of Black Engineering, the American Nuclear Society, UT's running club, the Chancellor's Honors Program, and the Grand Cook Challenge Honors Program. After graduation, I hope to work on the development of nuclear energy for disaster relief or extending the lifetime of currently operating plants.
