About Me

I am an undergraduate at WashU with a declared major in Chemical Engineering and a desire to make a change in our generation. Originally, I am from Truckee, California, but at the end of seventh grade I moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina with my family to complete 8th grade through high school there. I now speak English and Spanish fluently and Portuguese conversationally. When I first came to WashU I fell head-over-heels in love with the campus as a whole, the people I came in contact with – if only for one brief day – and my program. I would HIGHLY recommend a visit, it’s a complete show-stopper. The variety of campus clubs and activities available are countless. At the moment, I am a Resident Advisor ¬†for Dardick 2 where I live on the floor with 52 first year students and plan programs, serve as a mentor, and foster an open and warm environment for the students. I support the Society of Women Engineers, and I am a tour guide in training for WashU undergraduate admissions. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have about WashU and my time here. Also, don’t forget to follow my blog!
