From AASSEP to an Internship
by: Angel Guinn
Hello, my name is Angel Guinn. I joined a program called the All Akron Student Engineering Program (AASEP) which was designed to be a program for giving engineering students a glimpse of the engineering profession, which is currently run by Jonathan Simmions. I was selected to intern with a construction company, G. Stephens Inc. My first two weeks at G. Stephens company has been great! My project is to educate an audience about how humans play a part in the water cycle. A lot of my time, in the beginning, was dedicated to research about my topic, to be completely honest, it was all very new to me. Before I started I had never heard of Combined sewer overflow pipes or consent decrees. As I went deeper into the research I really appreciate the work that all of these people did and I was excited to have an impact with them and to add my work to this collection of people.
