I first heard about GapBuster when I joined the Wheaton chapter of NSBE Jr. I learned about the bigger organization that made the program possible for us. I was a part of the NSBE chapter for my junior and senior years of high school, so two years. GapBuster exposed me to a larger group of successful, ambitious engineering students. I took part in team challenges where I had to learn new programs and processes to achieve a goal. I was also able to travel to places I’ve never been such as Indianapolis and Nashville, Tennessee.
I met a lot of great people, had fun, and learned new ways to be successful in both school and my future career. As an alumni, I can come back to help teach new members what I learned in my experience. Also, now that I’m in college, I can help prepare current GapBuster students for what’s to come at the collegiate level.
