My name is Brianna Benedict and I attend North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University where I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering. After graduation, I intend on continuing my education with the Accelerated Bachelors Master’s program for Industrial & Systems Engineering. I enjoy making a difference in my community and spending time with family and friends. My role as Miss Institute of Industrial Engineers allows me the opportunity to interact with my peers and to encourage everyone to maintain involvement within our department and community. Also, my role as ambassador of the Industrial & Systems Engineering department permits me to serve as a role model and mentor to the incoming freshmen to ensure they are on the right path towards success. One day, I hope to design a school for inner city students that will provide the support and resources where they can define their own success.
