Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born in the Central Valley of California but was plunked into the lovely hippie culture of Santa Cruz. I love the oddities of my town and enjoy strolling along the beaches and overlooks. Moving here I've had more opportunteis than where I was before. I've created a workshop alongside a team and advisors that was hosted in the San Jose Tech Museum. We explored biotechnology and its applications in a cultural setting. As much fun I had, it was not where my heart was. I decided that I loved learning more about the cultural aspect of biotechnology pertaing to food and education. I am currently working as a Cashier at a local reatraunt and a student ambassaador for Cabrillo College. I am using my undergraduate experiece to explore diffent pathways and careers that I am interested in such as technology and education. I hope my range of experiences will help guide me to a career that I love and allows me to be a bit hippie ;)
