When I was in 8th grade, I won a national LEGO competition through Norwegian Cruise Lines by building a cruise ship out of LEGO bricks. I received a cruise vacation to the Caribbean as the prize.
This achievement fueled an already growing interest in pursuing engineering, which eventually led me to MIT. I am now working towards a degree in computer science and engineering.
LEGO is the ideal medium to combine art and engineering. Embrace their union!
