EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT

ingrid cepeda ingrid cepeda

Bilingual mechanical engineer with research experience, presentation skills, and a talent for thinking beyond the box. Excellent at understanding complex concepts quickly and applying them to problems with long-term strategies.

What does writing have to do with engineering?

While my engineering bachelors taught me all about problem solving and analytical skills, my writing MA helped narrow those experiences to form my own kind of creative process. Even once my part of a project is finished, I critique the form of my work, the structure, the level of creativity, even the amount of research I put into it. Engineering gave me a solid foundation of analytical thinking but screenwriting showed me how to turn strategic thinking into creative growth.
