Hi all! My name is Nicole Rybeck and I’m a third year student at the University double majoring in Industrial Engineering and French as well as pursuing two certificates- leadership and technical communications. I am currently serving as the President of our engineering student council (my picture can be viewed here! and as a writing editor for Wisconsin Engineer Magazine. You should definitely check out both websites! WE Magazine has a lot to offer online. We have some amazing archived articles that give readers a glimpse into the history of UW-Madison and how engineering gradually established it’s niche within it’s structure.
I first came to discover what BrainReactions was after attending the LeaderShape Institute with Anand (who was our on-site coordinator at the time) and Nick O’Brien. Nick and I kept in touch and he told me all about BrainReactions and eventually helped convince me to be a part of it. I’ve been a member of the team since late spring/early summer of last year and have loved every minute of it! I even was part of the infamous rafting trip that took place in August of last summer. If you are curious, please don’t hesitate to shoot me an email (email@example.com). It was definitely one of the top ten most exhilarating and scary times of my life!
With classes back in session shortly, I’ll be trying to gear up for an amazing semester! I’m hoping to find a great life balance for the semester and manage to find time for the things I love (painting and sketching, figure skating, snowboarding, visiting my friends out of state and baking to name a few!)
Hopefully, I’ll be putting in a lot of time at BrainReactions before I move to Milwaukee for the summer and fall of 2007. I’ll be on co-op with Harley Davidson there for the months of June-December following a three week backpacking adventure through southern Europe! After that, you can bet that I’ll be back in action with BRxns.
This is getting a little long-winded so I’ll leave you with this quote that always makes me think of the BrainReactions experience:
It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all.
-Edward De Bono
