Year: Senior

I’m a senior studying Chemical Engineering (Sustainable Energy emphasis). I am interested in green tech, and I hope to one day have an impact on global warming. Developing green tech doesn’t allow me to meet the people I help, so I love orgs like EWB that allow me to assist communities directly. I also love basketball. Go Lakers!
