When I define the words “engineer” and “entrepreneur,” and then compare myself against those definitions, often find in myself almost all of their attributes. Yet I don’t consider myself either of these. Why not? I wrote this portfolio to try to answer that question. In writing it, I found an organic feedback loop between my goals shaping my actions and my actions shaping my goals. While reflecting, I also found that the GCSP pillars of Service, Interdisciplinary Learning, Global Dimension, Entrepreneurship, and Research had woven themselves throughout. As of graduation, this progression has led to a strong identification with an engineering mindset and an international, security-based focus. Someday I may feel like an engineer, but for now I’m content to think like one, and to one day use the engineering toolset to make positive change in the world.
