What I liked
I loved my time at Plant Barry. I worked with the plant project engineers to in which, I managed several projects to replace parts in the plant during outages and some during normal operation. While I was responsible for these projects, I did have a team of people working with me which taught me how to work better with others. This was especially helpful during the long, strenuous outage periods in which we were working with the same people every day, all day. At some point, we all got to that point of exhaustion, but usually when one of us did, we had our teammates there to lift us up and help us back on our feet. I would say the environment at Plant Barry spoiled me in a sense. We were like a big family. The preach "Safety first" and they really do mean it. There was always someone watching out for you. When I first got there, they allowed me to take it all in my first semester and just learn as much as I could. Then by my summer semester, I was leading my own projects. By the end of my year, I was working with the same responsibilities as the engineers I worked with. People there are so friendly and actually want to see you succeed. I will never forget the people who helped me along my way and I am forever grateful to them for all they did.
