I’m studying Engineering at the University of Boulder. I love playing video games, watching anime and building cool stuff. I’m planning on becoming a consultant, which basically means that people come to me with their problems and I help them fix it. When I’m not in school I usually spend my time building keyboards or playing baseball with some friends.
What inspired you to explore STEM when you were young?
I am a Spanish native speaker and had to learn English at an age of 8, which is when I first arrived in the United States. During that transition, English was the most difficult part of the day. During school, the teachers would take me out of composition or reading and put me in an ESL class. Math class was the only universal language I had.
What do you enjoy most about what you do in your STEM career?
My favorite part of STEM and specifically engineering is the different types of problems I have encountered and trying to solve them in different ways. Sometimes this results in collaborating between disciplines and that collaboration results in so many interesting conversations and connections.
What is an interesting fact you would like to share with students about your STEM field?
Everything we use requires some kind of engineering. The buildings, phones, chairs, you name it and it definitely incorporate some kind of engineering
