I was born in Lima, Peru and moved to the United States in 2008. I am currently studying at Hudson County Community College working towards an Associate’s degree in Engineering Science. I plan to transfer to a four-year institution to attain a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. My passion for design and innovative machinery sparked my interest in this field. I am also driven to use my mechanical engineering knowledge to help assist communities that lack in energy efficiency and recovery. I hope to work in the field of energy science and technology and help communities in need of both innovation and support. I am grateful for any opportunities in academia or industry that will help develop my career.
