Kaijia Tian
Memorial High School
College/School: University of Texas at Austin
Career Goal: Chemical Engineering

Kaijia is a member of the National Honor Society, National Art Society, National Science Society, and many other groups. She has a love for science and independent thinking, and is capable of solving problems on her own through creative means. Karla Lowerre, a chemistry teacher at Memorial High, describes Kaijia as “always happy and enthusiastic and proved to be an incredibly diligent student.”

With a particular interest in clean air, Kaijia wants to join with other chemical engineering students in locating new sources of hydrocarbons and researching novel processes for upgrading the production of fossil fuels, making them more efficient to burn. In her personal essay she writes, “I want to work closely with petroleum companies to develop cleaner solutions of efficient, alternative fuels for the human race and solve the energy crisis not only for ourselves, but also for our descendents to come.”
Her next stop is the University of Texas at Austin, where she will study chemical engineering.
