Review of an meaningful and great experience - Zeinab at Health Care

Zeinab is studying chemical engineering and did an internship in Process Engineering at Health Care.

My name is Zeinab and I am a senior student in Chemical Engineering at Purdue University in Indiana. I love to try new foods and play soccer with my brother. Furthermore, I enjoy thrifting clothes and sewing or dyeing them to make them uniquely for me.  

This summer I did an internship at the Tippecanoe site of Evonik in Lafayette, USA, for three months. I only knew a little about Evonik before my internship. One thing that really drew me to the company was the diversity of the business lines and potential for collaboration and growth on a personal and professional level. I worked in the Health Care business line as an intern in Process Engineering. I supported engineering activities for a project which entailed providing design calculations for lab scale equipment and researching unanswered topics during the process design. Furthermore, I updated process safety information and had the chance to participate in a process safety project. Towards the end of the summer, I created an Aspen Plus simulation for the continuous production of bulk active pharmaceutical ingredient in order to model the energy balance of the system.  

Throughout my time there, my mentor was extremely supportive, and I found that everyone was more than willing to help in any way they could. The culture at Evonik is something that really stuck out to me and I appreciated during my summer as an intern. Over the course of my internship, I had multiple opportunities to use my school knowledge and also learned a lot about the industry and the differences in thought processes. What I will take with me moving forward is: always keep an open mind to different ways of approaching a situation and being constantly ready and eager to learn new things from different people and experiences. I would recommend everyone: get involved with Evonik if you can because I had an incredibly meaningful experience and I’m grateful that I got this chance.  

See you soon

In addition to being extroverted and highly sociable, my friend (I dare to say my sister from another mister!) Cintia and I have many commonalities: having Japanese roots, starting the Evonik career in Sao Paulo, being an ISAM (International Sales And Marketing) Program alumni, and many years living abroad. Cintia continues to grow her life, both personally and professionally, in Germany, while I have been based out of the U.S.A. for the last six years. We have been able to reach the optimal work-life balance with support of our spouses, families and colleagues, being active parents and developing our international careers.

The passion for music runs in my family, my father used to play a cavaquinho (similar to an ukulele) and saxophone, my brothers were DJs and I became a drummer during my teenage years, playing Ramones’ punk rock songs as loud as possible. I continue to play drums to feel good, not to be good, as not everything is about improvement or skill. I play drums because it takes me out of myself. Many of you can probably relate to that, therefore I ask: what do you do to make you feel good? P.S.: my cymbals and drumheads are low volume, so I don’t play it too loud =) #GuestEditor #FeelGood #Passion
