I am the first of my family to attend a four-year university, my hometown is Santa Ana, California (near Los Angeles). Currently I am working towards obtaining a bachelor of science degree in Civil Engineering. Specifically, my focus is on environmental and water resources engineering. I enjoy outdoor activities to keep me active, and being surrounded by nature is always a nice way to get way and relax. In addition to a bachelor’s degree my goals are to complete a master’s and doctorate program, while continuing research. I’ve never been to Minnesota, so I’m definitely ready to explore and very much excited to be doing what I love.
