University of Colorado Boulder - 2019

Worked with Engineers Without Borders

Project:  Working to provide guidance, tutoring, and support to students from low-income households, especially on classes focused on STEM. “I Have a Dream” Foundation is an organization that works in the Boulder Valley community. This is an outstanding
organization to partner with and commit to their mission to transform lives through education, especially the lives of our youth.

Inspiration: Education is the key to innovation and development. Our society needs that.
I am one of the lucky ones to have college accessibility thanks to grants and scholarships like Puksta.
I wish I would have had access to similar programs like the “I Have a Dream” Foundation. Programs that can make the transition to higher education easier. I think that I am privileged to be in certain circumstances, so I want to share this with our local community.

“Every generation has the obligation to free men’s minds for a look at new worlds, to look out from a higher plateau than the last generation.” -USAF Col Onizuka

Future Plans: Provide guidance, mentorship, and support to students of similar backgrounds based on  personal experiences in college. College life can get challenging, and I’d love to be a part of making the life of even one student easier.
