"I received the Marie Adamson scholarship in 2015. I am now in my second year at UCLA as an aerospace engineer and I love it. There are endless opportunities for me here. I am on the board of the student branch of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and I am a member of the Rocket Project at UCLA. With these activities, I have been able to learn professional and hands on skills. Outside of the classroom I’m a member of the Club Water Ski and Wakeboard team and I get to travel all over the western region and compete against other schools. This summer I plan to intern with Booz Allen Hamilton in Washington D.C.
Although I love it here in Southern California, I would not be here without everyone in Marietta who helped me along the way. I would like to thank the Marietta Community Foundation for its generosity and contribution to enabling me to pursue my passions. The picture included is of me at the Rose Bowl before the UCLA v. Stanford game, go Bruins!"- Olivia Wesel
