I'm Kira, a current Science major planning to graduate with my associate's degree from Brightpoint in Summer 2024. I am also a sophomore Mechanical Engineering major at George Mason University. Starting several years ago as a dual enrollment and concurrent enrollment student, I have taken a variety of classes with Brightpoint, including both in-person and asynchronous formats. I have also participated in many Brightpoint theatre productions, and hope to combine the arts and engineering in my career.
