“I did a summer engineering internship with NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston. It was a phenomenal experience with a community of students from across the country. I worked in the technology and innovation division, doing 3D printing — it’s new, cutting edge. My mentor was a Valpo grad. We found common ground because Valpo has a way of nurturing a certain type of person.”
