“I began my time at Notre Dame as a mechanical engineering major, but I switched to aerospace engineering,” says Jean Pierre Clarke. It hasn’t been an easy or a straight path, but that doesn’t bother Clarke. “I try to not get narrow minded in life by working out defined pathways to my long-term goals because things never work out how you plan them. Instead I embrace opportunities and work with the resources I have to the best of my ability.”
