"Participating as the student representative on the Civil and Environmental Engineering Faculty Committee helped me better my communication skills, taught me how to work with others toward a common goal, and improved my time management skills. I was given the opportunity to step out of the technical bubble and consider the bigger picture. Looking back, I feel grateful for working with professors that valued my input and implemented some of my ideas."
