Amber Lee entered ASU as a student-athlete; however, after her first few months at ASU, she chose to give up athletics to dedicate more time to her studies.

She chose electrical engineering because of her interest in math and computer science, which comprises much of the degree’s coursework. Amber was captivated by James Bond films during her junior year in high school, fascinated by the tools and devices in the series.

She dreams of inventing some of those devices one day, and for her, acquiring an electrical engineering degree serves as the first step in that direction.

Amber also enrolled in Barrett, the Honors College, to diversify her academics beyond engineering classes. She enjoys the small class discussions the program provides. She works as a tutor in the Barrett Writing Center and as a section leader for an ASU 101 class, which provides an introduction to a student’s program and the university.

Amber’s advice for students:

Don’t think of the tutoring center as a place for struggling students. Think of it as a place to learn a new skill or an opportunity to enhance your current skillsets. The tutoring center is a great resource, and taking advantage of these resources will only open more doors.”
