This week’s student spotlight nomination was Jessica Srail! Jessica did a great job last week organizing the CBE Freshman cookout and AIChE wanted to thank her for all of her effort and dedication.

She is described by her closest friends as smart, a loyal friend, very trustworthy, patient, crafty, organized, caring, and calm while also being too enthusiastic about food and dancing!
Jessica’s best personal quality is her ambition. It drives her to get involved in organizations, where she has found some amazing friends and made wonderful memories already. Her ambitious nature also helps her be outgoing and imaginative while staying realistic about her friendships and ideas. Jessica is really interested in cosmetics. Her career goal is to work as a cosmetic formulations expert to understand the technical side of the cosmetic industry, and then move to management to understand the business side of the makeup industry better. Besides her love of makeup, her hobbies include photography, calligraphy, baking, singing, dancing, and skiing! Jessica is very active in giving back to the community by having volunteered as a tutor back in high school as she loved passing on what knowledge she had. She has continued that love into college with her involvement as a peer mentor for the chemical engineering program. When she can, she picks up volunteering opportunities like baking at the Ronald McDonald House or being the Child Activities Coordinator at the Love-A-Nurse Run.
