My designated, but by no means disappointing, partner was Hunter. Simply by noticing the way he talks, he is quite creative and witty in terms of humor and entertainment. However, he is looking into the more serious business of aerospace engineering. Hunter is additionally interested in an entrepreneurship for company management. And yet, he likes flying kites and he likes dancing in his spare time, his spirit animal is the killer whale, and he would like to go to Oxford just for the sake of saying he has been there—a Gatsby in disguise.
I at first suggested that he make a company involving kite design, but we quickly came to the conclusion that it was a terrible idea. There is a pretty generic way to make a kite, and even for those out of the ordinary, he could not possibly create anything new for there has been a plethora already created. I then began suggesting how Hunter should study abroad in England, that way he could actually say that he has been to Oxford, and he could also get a new take on the businesses that are ran there in comparison to America while maintaining his role in the education system.
Going off of his rather intimidating spirit animal, I thought that he could also partake in a mechanical engineering team by taking the role of the aerodynamics designer. He could even use the body of the killer whale as his inspiration. Perhaps, to begin, Hunter could partake in a job-shadow for Boeing, giving him more of a first-hand experience before joining a team. Both of these options would not only be applicable to his aerospace engineer major, but also could play key roles in his future—the step-up on his resume, the foot-in-the-door to an expanding business, the life-altering discovery.
