During my time at Sandia National Laboratories, I interned under the department of WMD Threats and Aerosol Science. I saw men and women using their scientific and engineering backgrounds to study and understand systems that can be used to counteract chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction. It was incredible to see and work on various projects that allowed for counter-terrorism. One of the biggest projects I worked on was our "Spray Knockdown System" it is a massive, almost 20-foot-tall, decontamination structure.

The decontaminate would be electrically charged so that it would stick to the object, similar to how rubbing a balloon on your hair lets it stick to a wall.

I have a family of immigrants who 's stories constantly remind me of how lucky I am to live here. America is my home and I love her dearly.

My love for my home and the experiences I had at Sandia are the reasons I want to be a part of the Department of Defense. I desire a powerful and safe America, and as an aspiring engineer, I want to use whatever skills I have to make that possible. I believe that the best way I can contribute to the goal of a safer America is to use my technical skills at the Department of Defense. It would be an honor to serve the country I love using whatever talents I
