Best memories from your Valpo days:

Cultural Nights and other VISA events

 

How Valpo prepared you for your career path:

My experience in Valpo made me more independent, flexible, adaptive, and more accepting. It helped me to broaden my perspective. I grew a lot as an individual.

 

Where you are now:

Post-Valpo, after working for 3 years, I went for a degree at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign, graduating with my master’s in Construction and Infrastructure Design. After my graduation, I accepted an offer from Kiewit (America’s one of the biggest Civil Engineering and Construction companies). I have started working as a Roadway Engineer in their Kiewit Infrastructure Engineering department. I am really looking forward to this new adventure in my life. Kiewit is a multi-billion dollar and a Fortune 500 company. It has amazing opportunities to offer, and I am very excited about it.
