Meet the Interns! 2016 – Olivia Snyder

OliviaOlivia Snyder is a civil engineering major attending at the University of Akron. When asked why she chose that major, she said: “I always wanted to build something. I wanted to be able to point to something and say, ‘I built this!’”

Olivia enjoys singing, playing the piano, and has too many nicknames to count. She recently moved out on her own, which has proved to be a major adjustment. This has meant seeking independence, effectively managing money, developing connections, and finding a balance between passion and realism. She values integrity, determination, and logic.

After her graduation, Olivia hopes to find a job at an engineering company. She doesn’t feel she will be done with school yet, though. She may pursue studies in finance, and eventually, music.

Today, we are celebrating Olivia’s birthday with doughnuts in the lunch room! This summer, she is going on vacation to New Jersey, and she will be moving to an apartment with a close friend.
