My name is Mitva Patel. I am a Bioengineering major. I want to work as a medical device designer in the field. I am very passionate about innovation in the medical field.

Rodrigo Garrido: Hello everyone, my name is Rodrigo Garrido and I am a senior in Industrial Engineering. I moved to the U.S. 6 years ago and as soon as I got my green card I joined the Army. I have been in the Army for the past 5 years, and I have been in school for the past 4. I am passionate about helping those who are in need, and I want to create jobs that are safe and enjoyable for people, after all we are going to spend the majority of our lives working. I love working with my hands, and I am obsessed with cars. I have a Six Sigma certification, and I am planning to get as many certifications as possible. My personal goal is to be the person who everybody asks for help. Currently I work at Nylok as the Industrial Engineering Intern, I am a volunteer tutor for SHPE jr, and I am also working on starting a car detailing company (as a hobby).
