I'm so excited to be graduating with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the U! I've dreamed of becoming an engineer for a long time so it's surreal to know it's happening. Thanks to my amazing friends and family who have given me unconditional support these past five years!

Not only did I learn everything I hoped I would and more, but I also met so many cool people and did so many awesome things I never could have otherwise. I'm really grateful to everybody for helping me get where I am today, and where I'm going in the future. Thank you all!

It's been a long time coming to the end of this road and we have all made it. Congrats to everyone so far and good luck in your future endeavors. Go Class of 2021!

I wish everyone graduated from University of Utah will have a wonderful future, as everyone can get a well-paid job, get admitted to the graduate school you like. At last, I wish everybody stays safe during this special school year.
