Vice Chair: Kyra Kozar


University: Stevens Institute of Technology, Naval Engineering (2023)

AboutMy name is Kyra, I am a rising Graduate Student in the Accelerated Master Program at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey. I graduated Stevens in May 2023 with a Bachelors of Engineering in Naval Engineering and a minor in Economics. Ever since I was young I enjoyed going on cruises with my family and have developed a passion for the cruise shipping industry. My dream is to be the Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises. For my high school senior capstone project, I was given the opportunity to shadow the Port Captain of Cape Liberty Cruise Port in Bayonne, New Jersey. Last summer, I was an intern for Royal Caribbean Group in their Newbuildings and Technical Projects Department and got to live in Miami, Florida. I participated in the writing of the Fleet Stability Report. I was an Undergraduate Research Assistant in the Davidson Laboratory at Stevens and helped with whatever projects are taking place. Non naval related, I am a third degree black belt in Taekwondo and am ranked in the top 8 athletes in the United States. I am a National bronze medalist and US Open gold medalist. I am looking forward to serving as SSC Vice Chair for 2023!
