Bell Helicopter, Material and Process Engineer II
"I did not have the conﬁdence in myself when it came to my schooling. Being dyslexic presented me with many challenges in an academic setting. Although, when I started my path of earning my degree in material science and engineering, the challenges where still there but I had the passion and drive to overcome my lack of conﬁdence. I accredit this change in attitude to the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. With the chance to have hands on experience, a focus on students' diﬀerent learning abilities, and resources at my disposal, it was no wonder I felt like I was thriving in school. The conﬁdence instilled in me from my time at UNT still helps me today. When working on major projects at Bell, I lean on the knowledge and experience I gained at UNT to overcome any challenges."
