I remember the first time I stepped into the Kennedy Space Center at age 5 - they day I chose to become an engineer. Once I began my college degree at the University of Puerto Rico I was overwhelmed by the many industries in which I could apply my career choice. I slowly started testing and volunteering in different student projects such as robotics, Formula SAE, research assistantships, even internships in automotive companies. Nonetheless I still needed more direction and once I was done with my undergraduate I went for my master's degree on a full scholarship at Purdue University. While at Purdue I had the opportunity to work on some ground breaking research in nanoscale transport. This pretty much cleared it up for that I wanted to be a thermal engineer. So when Ford Motor Company offered me a position doing just that for their hybrid programs there was no way I could say no.
