Ladies, meet a GRADUATING Electrical Engineering senior from Bowie, Maryland, Mr. Troy Asobie. You may have noticed Troy on campus from his outfits as he takes much pride into getting dressed. Troy is also a member of many organizations including the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), the International of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and The Caribbean Pre-Alumni Council (CPAC). This week Her Campus got to catch up with him read below to see what he had to say.
HC: So, how was your summer?
TA: It was great! I had an Internship with Northrop Grumman at BWI Airport which I got through NSBE. There I worked with coding, radar, and electronic warfare.
HC: Speaking on NSBE tell me more about it.
TA: NSBE is the National Society of Black Engineers. We do community service go to conferences, network etc.
HC: What are your plans after graduating?
TA: It’s funny that you ask that, the internship I did this summer gave me an offer. It’s a development program so every 9 months I will switch my job to find what I like. I also want to get my Masters, but I’m not sure if it’s going to be Business or Engineering.
HC: Okay, enough about Engineering let’s get to the real questions why we’re here today! How’s your dating life on campus?
TA:*laughs* It hasn’t really worked out for me. To be completely honest, I am very deep into my work so I see it as a distraction. Every once in awhile I might look, but I have never had a girlfriend at Hampton.
HC: How do you feel about the increase of sexually related incidents such as rape on campus?
TA: This is something that Hampton should get on. It’s sad to see that it is going on and it needs to be addressed immediately. You also need to ask around because you never know your friend could be there very one that is getting raped.
HC: How would you like it if a girl approached you?
TA: I’d like if a girl approached me. Its different, not to many of them do that now.
HC: So, scenario: you are in the stu sitting down doing work. How should a girl approach you?
TA: First, she’d have to smile. Then if she said what’s up and asked how my day was going that’d be nice too because it’s the little things that matter. She can start small talk and also if she gave me a compliment. I like compliments because I try to take my time and look nice in the mornings. Overall, she would just have to be genuine because that’s a turn off.
HC: What article of clothing best describes your personality?
TA: I dress upon my mood. These days, I always gotta have a watch and a chain. I feel like it’s an accessory that make your outfit pop.
HC: What’s the first thing you notice about a female?
TA: Hair. Females take a long time to get ready so if their hair isn’t done then what were they doing. Then after that I’d say face.
HC: Big question of the day: Are you looking?
TA: Currently, I’d say no because of distractions but if someone was to come up to me, I think I’d give them the time of the day
