My engineering education required that I analyze and interpret written materials, including technical materials, rules, instructions and reports. In the advanced levels of my engineering education, it was necessary to manage large amounts of information and make connections between the new concepts and concepts previously learned. I have always made a conscious effort to evaluate each person as an individual based on my own personal experiences with them. In doing this, I have acquired many friends with wide ranges of cultures and ethnicities. George Mason University (GMU) is known as one of the most diverse universities in the nation. Due to this fact, I am accustomed to interacting with people that have different backgrounds on a daily basis. I was an assistant tennis pro at Tuckahoe Recreation Club. At this job, I had to communicate with a wide variety of children and teens to run the camp smoothly while improving the children’s tennis skills. The parents would ask questions ranging from stroke techniques, to behavioral problems off the court. In these situations I would not only have to act as a tennis coach, but also as a mentor and source of information for these parents. This job allowed me to refine my oral communication skill in order to make clear and convincing oral presentations. My goal for future employment is to find a job that will challenge me on an intellectual, and personal level. I would like a job that allows me to use my problem solving skills, but also allows me to have some creative freedom.
