Erica Lee Garcia is our November Ambassador of the Month! Erica is the Founder and CEO of her own Consulting Company (Erica Lee). She graduated Materials Engineering from Queens University.

Why did you choose to study engineering?

Because I wanted to make the world a better place.

How do you apply your degree to your career?

I am always thinking of ways to break down problems into manageable pieces, understand the inputs and outputs of any process, and find ways to do things better.

What advice do you have for someone hoping to pursue a career in engineering?

Be ready to work hard and don’t lose hope! Remember who you are as a whole human being. Never lose track of what matters most to you. You’re making a great choice, as engineering is a great way to solve important problems and shape the future.
