Biography
Hey there! My name is Sarah. I was born and raised an engineer in San Diego, California! My dad began trying to teach me basic algebra before I knew how to divide. I remember him trying to explain simple equations like 2x=4 when i was too young to understand. A few years later, I went back to him and asked him about those problems he used to ask me to solve. I've loved math ever since! I soon learned to love physics as well, and from there an engineer was born! I now have a bachelors in mechanical engineering and work for General Dynamics NASSCO as an engineer! I love problem solving and getting my hands dirty! I work with ships, but I love cars and hope to get into the aerospace industry someday!
