About Me

My passions are math and science which is why I’m in engineering because it combines the two. Even though these are my main interests, I also like history and learning more about the past and what it can mean for the future. I am fluent in a language besides English. In addition, I hope to travel in the future.

Campus and Community Involvement

I plan on joining Chemical Engineering organizations and volunteer as part of those organizations. When I can find time, I enjoy playing soccer.

Awards and Honors

I was member of the National Honor Society. I received Commended for the PSAT and I was a High School Aerospace Scholar. Furthermore, as a member of TAMS I earned a spot on the Dean’s List at UNT and was on the Honor Roll at UNT as well.

Study Abroad

I am not taking any languages but I would like to travel to Italy or Greece. Studying abroad would provide me with the opportunity to travel and experience another culture, which is something I have always wanted to do. 


I am interested in researching alternative energy sources. In addition, I am interested in learning more about bio molecular engineering because it has important clinical applications, particularly in pharmaceuticals.

Future Endeavors

I plan on going to medical school because I have always wanted to become a doctor and help people.
