Mr. Mechanical Engineer

Working on his Senior Project
      Words can not began to describe the happiness I am feeling for Emmanuel. For the past 4 years we have seen him achieve so much with his Engineering education. His ambition has always been present in his education, which is reflected by all the sleepless nights he spent studying, the respect he gained from his colleagues, not to mention his professors who see a lot of potential in him, being in the Dean's list semester after semester, and graduating from college with a well payed engineering job.

     To him, this is barely the beginning. He says he plans on going to graduate school next semester to continue on to his Masters while working full time as an airframes structures engineer for the United States Department of Defense supporting the F/A-18E/F & EA-18G warfighters. He said to celebrate his Graduation when he gets his Master's but this is such a big milestone that I just had to write about him graduating with a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. 

    To celebrate his Graduation, his Mom, Perla, Nathan, and I took him out to dinner. There, we celebrated him and showed him how proud he has made us all. They got to see, first hand, all the hard work he had to do every night after night and how he still managed to graduate with exemplary grades. You could see it in their eyes how happy they were. Such an amazing, inspiring night.

Here are a few pictures of his journey:
