    Good Evening, I am currently a mechanical engineering student, and the captain of the University of Houston Dance Team. I will be in the co-op program at NASA JSC this fall. I also tried out for the Houston Texans Cheerleaders team for next year, made finalists, and unfortunately did not make the final team. Do you have any advice on how to work in engineering and continue dancing/cheering? Also, do you have any advice about how to make the HTC team for next time I audition? Thank you so ...
