The butterfly effect

College is a time of transformation, but for Audrey Mabiza, it’s been a full-on metamorphosis. The engineering senior from Harare, Zimbabwe, began to maximize her potential by connecting to opportunities at MSU, and now she’s helping others do the same. When she’s not in the lab, Audrey takes new students under her wing and mentors intercultural aides who help them find a sense of belonging. After graduation she wants to draw on her environmental engineering concentration to help oil companies transform their practices in Africa for the better.
