My name is Anita Agustsdottir and I am from Iceland. I attend Embry Riddle Aeronautical University at Daytona Beach. My major is Human Factors Psychology and I am really interested in the human body and the brain and how it adapts to different situations.
I am a very organised and determined person, if my mind is set to something I am going to do it. I work as well on my own as in groups, and if I am in a group or a team, I will do everything in my power to make it successful. What I bring to my team is that I am very organised, I have good attention to detail and want everything to be perfect before I turn in something.
I have not decided what I want to do in the future, but I know it is going to have something to do with the human body.
Ever since I was little I have been playing sports. I used to do both swimming and soccer, but I had to pick one and decided to stick to soccer. I am on the women’s soccer team at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Last fall we made it to sweet sixteen in Nationals, which is a competition for every division two school in the United States.
Whenever I have free time I like to read and spend time with my family and friends. I have done a lot of volunteering in the past years, both in the US and back home in Iceland.
This project will help me improve my technical skills, online and in person, and further develop and strengthen my personal skills and it is going to be very helpful in the future.
