Natassia's Story

My passion is engineering. I discovered my passion for engineering only 30 minutes after entering my first engineering class in high school. We were shown a video on the impact that engineers have on the world, and to say that I was amazed at the legion of things that engineering is responsible for making the world more efficient would be an understatement. I was astonished, and developing an understanding of various ways of impacts made me become more aware of the variety of ways that a person can offer help. I have always wanted to help others, and an engineer can help others with the smallest creation such as toilet paper. I would have a small but significant impact on making life easier. I have also been very interested in the medical field; however, I feel more passionate about working behind the scenes and ensuring that everything, while making the necessary advancement in tools, would help to further find cures and make it easier to ensure a person's health. There is always a way to improve the world for the benefit of everyone.

A Note from Mr. Chen, Natassia's Teacher

Natassia is a student who needs to learn outside the walls of our high school. She achieves so highly and is already at the top of her class, but unlike many top students, she is not just driven by grades- she is always thinking and gets more out of class than what she is given by her teachers. NSLC Biotechnology seems extremely hands on and she will get many opportunities to DO something with her knowledge that will pique her curiosity even more. I'm sure NSLC Biotechnology was created with students like Natassia in mind. She will perform at the highest level, but I know she will also push her peers around her to think deeper and enjoy their experience that much more.

Excited for a new experience

Now that I am on my way to my program the anticipation and excitement has kicked in fully. I will be in a completely new work environment that I have not yet been exposed to. I’m hoping to develop new skills that I can use even after the program. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity that I never thought I would ever get!
