Who I Am  

A Little About Me

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to take a field trip to Madison to work in one of the biotechnology labs where we conducted experiments related to genetic transformation, bioluminescence, restriction enzyme digest, and gel electrophoresis of DNA. For this reason, I decided to pursue a B.S. in Biomolecular Engineering and look forward to a potential career in genetic engineering, cosmetology, water sciences, or neuroscience. STEAM-based education is very important to me, so for this reason, I value the integration of the fine arts into my life. Lately, I have been growing my art, music, and writing social media (Instagram and YouTube). Five years of developing an art business and creating original music have taught me how to market digitally, create an original portfolio (including digital art, paintings, music, etc.), and work with diverse teams to solidify my artistic voice. My involvement in the University Innovation Fellows (UIF) program has taught me innovation and entrepreneurship concepts that I have been able to apply in all aspects of life, whether that be in education, career, or personal endeavors.

Interesting Factoid

While traveling internationally, I once had a monkey jump onto my shoulder and steal the sunglasses off of my face.
