“You don’t have to be the best and brightest to become an engineer, you just have to be a hard worker and be passionate,” said Miller. “I chose engineering because I thought it was fun to be hands-on, to solve different problems every day, and to better understand how things work.”
“No matter what path you choose after high school, knowing how to work and collaborate with others will always serve you,” said Irwin. “My best advice is to always find a way to advance your skills professionally, network like crazy, and build upon your work ethic.”
“When I was in high school, I thought all attorneys were like what you see on TV,” Rambin told the students. “Quarrelling in a courtroom doesn’t fit my personality, but other components of the legal field, like writing, problem-solving, and research, do. I finally decided to apply to law school once I began to understand the breadth of opportunity the field could offer me.”
“Be open-minded,” said Cole. “I never thought that I would go back to school to earn an MBA mid-career, or even be in this field working alongside attorneys like Sarah to vet vendors and secure contracts. I made decisions that challenged me to grow, and I couldn’t be happier.”
