Zepherin, “Zeph,” works for an aerospace company that builds, cleans, and inspects parts which often go into jet and rocket engines. “My job is to use a variety of chemicals to clean material off these parts. [It’s] dangerous, but thorough training and the right protective equipment helps keep us safe. It’s exhausting at times, but I take pride in this work, whether it’s cleaning parts to help keep planes in the sky or rockets in space. And someday, maybe even farther.”
