Nicole Weber earned her GED at Harper and is currently pursuing her Associate of Engineering Science with a probable focus on Aerospace Engineering. She will begin her second year at Harper College in Fall 2020. She is a first-generation college student with a strong passion for math, physics, and programming. She feels her mind is programmed for math and her enthusiasm for it comes through in her studies in which she maintains a 4.0 GPA. She plans to transfer to Illinois Institute of Technology after graduating from Harper.

Nicole is a member of Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) club at Harper as well as Phi Theta Kappa. She works as a tutor in the tutoring center on campus and has been tutoring adults in the GED program. She volunteered at Harper’s EXPO day in the fall and the Science Olympiad. Nicole has worked since she was 15 years old and currently works two jobs to support herself while simultaneously keeping her studies at the forefront.

In her scholarship application Nicole Weber states: “As a future engineer, I am ready to find solutions to problems that people face daily and make a positive impact on the world around me. I have seen the impact that people have on the world and I will use my talents to help make it a better place. After I graduate from college, it is a goal of mine to use science and math to help make a difference by creating interactive models that will help educate the public. I hope to one day find a job that encourages me to climb the ladder of success while incorporating math and science into my everyday tasks.”
