Name: Kiera Patterson
Hometown: Newnan, Georgia
Major: Industrial Engineering
Clubs/Involvement: Diversity ambassador, Rethink marketing chair, OMED Challenge counselor, Georgia Tech Athletics student tutor.
What are you doing after graduation? Working at AT&T as a senior specialist in Tech Project Management.
Q: Georgia Tech engineering classes can be tough. How did you balance difficult classes with other activities?
A: I balanced my work by making a "to do" list each day. My "to do" list alway had all my assignments and emails I needed to send, and on really busy days I would make sure to add relaxation activities to the list. Those lists really helped me stay on top of my work and have time for extra activities.
Q: What's your favorite thing about going to school in Atlanta?
A: The fact that there is always something to do off campus. Atlanta has so much to offer. I have been to many concerts, festivals, Falcons games, and restaurants since I came to Tech.
Q: What is the one moment in your Georgia Tech career that sums up your experience here?
A: When President Obama came to campus. The lines that formed to get tickets were something I will never forget. Seeing the President speak has been something I have always wanted to do, and I am so glad I got to see him at Georgia Tech!
