[intro music]>>MADISEN I decided to pursue Human Centered Design and Engineering just because I really
like how this major is focused on the human in all aspects.>>DAVID In the Posner research group I help
design a paper-based HIV diagnostic test. that can be used globally. It could drastically reduce the rate of transmission of HIV.>>MADISEN Being an engineering peer educator, for me, is a great way to give back to the engineering
community. Navigating such a big school and the college
of engineering, it can be challenging at times
so being that point of contact for a student can really make a difference.>>DAVID The Posner research group is a very
interdisciplinary group which makes it really exciting.
And I think that application to global health and bettering the world
is what has kept me in the lab. After I graduate from UW I’d like to pursue a Ph.D. in chemical engineering,
specifically I’d like to be in the field of nano science.>>MADISEN Ultimately with my engineering degree I hope
to problem solve and help others building things that will help people be more productive or to do their job better or just to help people in general.>>DAVID My scholarship has made a huge difference in my life. When I found out I had received the scholarship
immediately a huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. MADISEN>>Thank you so much for really believing
in me and supporting me. I feel like it’s made my experience much
richer It really gives me the opportunity to be the
best student I can be not just academically but being involved on
campus and mentoring other students and cultivating a good community within UW engineering.>>DAVID I would tell my donor that they have
improved every day of my life. I’m happier because of them, I’m doing
better in school already because of them Receiving a scholarship like this is definitely
a reminder for a student like me that your work is being appreciated,
it is worth it, and I should keep going and pursuing the things that I love doing. [music]
