Happy #WIAAWednesday everyone! To kick off our first feature of the semester, we’re excited to showcase our amazing President, Julia Mittelstaedt . Julia is a Senior aerospace engineering major doing Air Track. Ever since she was a kid she wanted the superpower of being able to fly. Julia became an aerospace engineering major because she wanted to learn how planes defy gravity and how flight works. Julia is from Upper Marlboro, MD, and is very involved at UMD. She is a violinist in the University of Maryland Repertoire Orchestra, and is a member of Club Tennis, along with her involvement in WIAA. Her career goals are to work as an engineer at Lockheed Martin, designing innovative aircraft and taking on leadership roles in the company. Julia also wants to become a helicopter rescue pilot in the Air or Army National Guard. The dream is to balance her engineering career along with her desire to fly and help people. Some advice Julia has for incoming freshman and her fellow students would be, “You can do anything you set your mind too. With the right attitude and determination, anything is possible. Don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions and maximize all the resources the University of Maryland offers.”
Three fun facts about Julia :
– New York City is my favorite place to visit
– I have performed at the Kennedy Center
– I have gone to elementary, middle, high school, and college all within the same county
