I am a rising senior at Mount Holyoke College, majoring in Physics and minoring in Mathematics. I come from Zimbabwe. My academic pursuits have been influenced by my interest in renewable energy as a pathway to sustainability. This has led me to conduct research in thin-film solar cells with a target to produce cheap solar cells. My ultimate goal is to provide engineering solutions to developing countries, especially in the area of solar energy, as a mechanical engineer. My hobbies are singing, spending time with friends, traveling and taking photos.
