'I'm making an impact'
Wellington Hall, 26
Providence, R.I.
Traffic engineer
Rhode Island Department of Transportation

I just got assigned as a project manager of a highway safety improvement project -- the goal is to identify intersections with high crash rates and work with consultants to mitigate accidents and make them safer. It feels good to know that these are some of the roads I drive on and that my coworkers and friends drive on. It feels good to know I'm making an impact.

Right now I'm working on other things too, like using renewable energy to save on electrical costs.There are always things to keep me busy.

This job has definitely helped me. I bought a house in august with my fiancé, got engaged in November and graduated last week. None of this would be possible without the stimulus and I'm very grateful for that. We're planning on getting married some time in 2011.

NEXT: 'I cannot imagine doing anything else'
