Eva Lee Ngai launched DOTnet an internal website for employees at the U.S. Department of Transportation under Secretary Ray LaHood in 2011. Writing stories about the different modes of transportation allowed me to learn about each of them.

Their generous spirit and sense of pride for a job well done made the agency seem like the perfect place to work. In 2014, I joined NextGen’s Performance and Outreach’s directorate; I’m now with FAA’s Office of Communications as a spokesperson for the Office of Commercial Space Transportation and public affairs specialist. Previously, I was a Public Information Officer at the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Washington Metropolitan Area District Office and held various positions at USA TODAY.
