Isabel Eburi ’20, a graduate of the academies and an international student from Equatorial Guinea, now works as a graduate civil engineer in training at Walter P. Moore & Associates in Houston. While at the Houston academy, she studied abroad in Yucatan, Mexico. After transitioning to College Station, she landed several internships and found her current job through the university’s career fairs.
Now, Eburi is fostering the next generation of engineers with her student platform Entre Estudiantes EG. Launched in 2019, the initiative promotes educational and professional development and introduces students from Equatorial Guinea to different career paths, particularly in STEM fields. “Entre Estudiantes is my way of giving back for everything the Engineering Academies and Texas A&M gave me,” she explained.
With additional plans to expand the academies’ enrollment and locations, the program will continue fueling Aggie dreams for students like Farnsworth, Eburi, Olaosebikan and the future generations they are working to inspire. “I hope my story encourages someone, especially somebody my age who has said ‘no’ to themselves before,” Olaosebikan said. “I hope it pushes them toward something they didn’t think possible.”
