My name is Talia Thomas. I’m from the vibrant army town of Ft. Meade, MD. I am currently a rising junior mechanical engineering student from North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University in Greensboro, NC. I am extremely interested in renewable energy integration and water-purification applications in the developing world. Along with pursuing a Ph.D. in sustainable developments and renewable energy systems, I hope to remain an active and positive force in my community and to do my part in making this world a little better for those who come after me. My hobbies include traveling the world, hiking, and serving my community.
