eCYBERMISSION, Alumni Association
Words of Advice?
The work will be difficult and the time frame will feel too short, but at the end of the experience you will have learned a lot and will want to keep learning more. Remember to keep working hard.

The best thing about eCYBERMISSION was getting to meet young engineers that are interested in the same things as I am. I also loved speaking to elected officials about technology that can improve our local communities.
How Participating in AEOP Inspired You to Advance in the STEM Field?
The judges who evaluated our project at the end of the competition suggested that we complete our construction and pursue patents for our innovations. We were told that being young does not negate the work we had accomplished; this advice really encouraged us to keep on improving and using our invention.

My favorite STEM role model is a man named Richard Embrick. He is so down to earth and is hilarious. We’ve had some really fantastic conversations and I look up to him a lot.
What are Your Future Hopes and Dreams?
I hope to own an engineering law firm that changes the world by inventing technology that alters laws of STEM.
