My interest in sustainability has really grown throughout my years here at UCI, starting with my first year living in Vista – the sustainability hall and continuing throughout the different classes I have been able to take. I am also a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and a Filipino Catholic organization on campus, called Liwanag. This year I hope to contribute knowledge that I’ve gained thus far in my college career and in turn hope to gain knowledge from my peers who’ve had different college experiences as me.
I’ve had the opportunity to live and travel to many different places because my dad currently serves in the US Navy, and every time I travel I love that there is always something new to learn. What I’m looking forward to most in Costa Rica are the different kinds of food we’ll get to try and all of the different animals we’ll get to see.
