Do 3 different programs over the summer two of which were at the U of U in engineering where I won the highest prizes in both setting myself up to return later on.
4 year tuition scholarship to U of U - Without working my butt off for a awesome GPA, ACT score, and all the other stuff, this would not have happened.
Graduated High School with something like a 3.9 or a 3.8... Can’t remember. (and an ACT of 30!)
Mission in Nicaragua for LDS Church learning Spanish, working with people, and the Gospel.
Began college studying Computer Engineering
Created service program where a few of us taught computer skills to a Spanish audience. It gave me the chance to lead and try new things. Way fun and rewarding!
Survive Undergraduate years making lots of friends, learning a ton, excelling in the classes, and setting myself up for all the important things that are to come. Also, I took special Honors classes along the way which let me interact with awesome people and learn really awesome things (I only was given this opportunity because I had the drive to do it and the High School grades to show I could).
Begin working for the Dr. Brown, the Dean of Engineering (The Big Important Guy!) which set me up for my internship next.
Begin 7 month Internship at Intel where I learned how to work in real life and learned I will never want to live in Phoenix Arizona - Wayyyyy too hot!!!!!!
Go to India on Study Abroad that I really had to fight for considering there was nothing like this before from the U of U. There I learned to travel and to connect with people from all over the world.
Return to college to finish my 5th and final year of my combined BS/MS program (Bachelors/Masters)
Offered Job at Intel (really awesome to get offered a job this early!!!). I was perfect for what they wanted so they decided it was best to wait 4 months for me. :)
Graduate college with my Computer Engineering Graduate Degree in Honors and a Computer Science Undergraduate Degree with like a 3.82 GPA
Begin job at Intel
Married to someone truly beautiful with whom I hope to continually grow with
