Current Studies and Future Goals

When asked what she found most meaningful about her field of study, Myisha responded with the following: "I decided to study Civil Engineering because of the emphasis on humans — or civilians. I aspire to build cities with sustainability in mind—both environmental and social sustainability—and promote social justice through ethical engineering practices. By combining this with my Quantitative Economics background, I hope to achieve a strong technical background that can supplement a traditional social science field."
