Student Spotlight February 2019 Marie Ouedraogo

 

 

Major: Prototype Design                            Expected graduation date:  May 2019

Why did you choose to attend Metropolitan Community College? Because MCC was cheaper than UNL. I still wanted a quality education and I am glad I came to MCC. My friends also really liked MCC and recommended I go to school here for my general education requirements before transferring.
 
Do you plan to further your education after receiving your associate’s degree?
Yes, I plan on attending UNL for Mechanical Engineering. I will be the first female Mechanical Engineer in my country.
 
How often do you utilize the LTC per week?
A couple of times per week.
 
How has LTC overall impacted your education?
The LTC has helped me a lot. I wouldn’t have gotten this far in the Jack Kent Cooke scholarship process without having the LTC staff help me with the application process and with the edits to my scholarship essay.
 
How has the LTC helped you get closer to your goal of graduation?
The LTC has helped me stay on track for my classes and I received a lot of advice throughout the process.
 
What have you learned or are learning that has made a difference to you?
I have learned a lot in Prototype Design. I have used a 3-D and CNC machines to make gifts for family and friends.
 
What is your Favorite Quote?
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you land among the stars.”
 
What would people be surprised to know about you?
That I like to sew and crochet.
 
What has been your greatest challenge?
The English language. I did not know English very well when I first arrived in the United States, so I worked hard to improve.
 
What advice do you have for incoming students?
Take advantage of the resources offered at the school. I didn’t know that a lot of the resources were open even during break. Without these resources, I do not know if I would have made it this far.
