I’m working as a Systems Engineer for Gordon-Flesch, a company that sells and leases printers in Madison, WI. My major has above all else helped me to think critically about my surroundings. Not only has this helped me broaden my horizons and expand out of my comfort zone, but also it has let me better understand people’s points of view and/or personal experiences.
One of the most important things I learned at Beloit was how to empathize better with everyone around me. It is very easy to be judgemental about people less fortunate than yourself when you don’t have their experiences, and my professors helped me consider things more carefully before crafting my own ideas.
