Biography: I'm an aspiring engineer at Brown University from the quirky city of Portland, Oregon. The skills I am gaining as an engineer will enable me to design creative solutions to environmental problems. I hope to work in developing countries that lack resources and advanced technology to mitigate the consequences of pollution and environmental damage. I am passionate about combining social justice and science to bring relief worldwide.

At Brown University, I am a @QuestBridge Liaison working on strengthening the community of low-income scholars on campus and providing them with the resources they need to excel. This summer, I will be interning with Providence Student Union where I will learn how to mobilize communities and inspire high school students to obtain a higher education. My goal is to have a global impact on society by using my knowledge and influence to empower individuals to achieve beyond their limitations. I believe my work in the engineering and education fields will allow me to do so.
