More About Me
At Penn State, I'm involved in Women in Materials Science, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers and Diversity Council for EMS
I picked my major because materials are ubiquitous and work exceedingly well as a foundation to change the way in which people impact the earth. In order to truly stop the current trend of planet destruction, asking people to make changes in their day-to-day life is relatively ineffective. As an aspiring materials scientist, I hope to be able to make everyone’s daily life inherently more sustainable without having to rely on people to shift to more environmentally conscious lifestyles.
The best class I took at Penn State was MatSE 400 taught by Dr. Susan Trolier-McKinstry. She was born to teach and guide others, and I have never felt more engaged in a classroom.
My best advice for students is never let yourself get complacent in learning. Stay curious, and question everything that you think you already know.
In my free time, I like to unleash my creative side. I draw and write a bit, and I read far too much.
The most important thing I learned in college is tolerance and acceptance are not things that you can force on other people.
If I could be any animal, it would be a Mantis shrimp. They are the most radical animal, full stop. Look them up!
My role model is my mother. She may not be a brilliant scientist, but she is a constant reminder that kindness, love, and patience are well and truly important.
