Aerospace Engineering - May 2025

Short-Term Goals

My short-term goals are to put my energy towards my objective every day, which is to become an aerospace engineer, while constantly looking for my best version in intellectual, interpersonal, physical and mental aspects.

I intend to live many experiences, build a diverse and broad background, which will help me to see things from different perspectives. I always want to continue in search of knowledge, especially those related to aerospace engineering, which is the course that addresses the subjects that I will use to put my plans into practice, and astronomy, which is my favorite hobby.

I want to meet new people and stories, create networking and friendships.

I seek to exercise communication and creativity in my personal, academic and professional projects and be in constant search for new opportunities for growth and learning. I wish to keep alive the hope and the belief that I can change the world and positively impact people's lives and, thus, be able to also be an example and inspiration that we are able to achieve everything we dream of.

Long-Term Goals

My long-term goals are to undertake the creation of aerospace instruments that will make life easier. My fascination with aerospace engineering goes beyond academic knowledge to enter the world of entrepreneurship where scientific advances are at the service of humanity.

I want to participate in congresses and events around the world, promoting the sharing of knowledge produced and encouraging people to positively impact everyday life. My prosperity will be fostering the continuity of the evolution of the world through support to the institutions of studies that welcomed and prepared me, so that more young people have access to the university and the opportunity to fulfill their aspirations.

I will feel fulfilled when, as an elderly woman, look at what I will have accomplished and be sure that my effort and dedication paid off, have the satisfaction of knowing that my potential will have been optimized and that the result of my choices not only benefits me but impacts the lives of thousands of people.
