I am nineteen years old and I am originally from Medellin, Colombia. I came to the United States in 2012 after I received a chess scholarship to represent the University of Texas at Brownsville. I am a Mathematics major, and my long term goal is to obtain a PhD in Mathematics and become a researcher in an academic or industrial field. My area of focus is abstract algebra, especially group theory. In my free time I like to watch classic movies.
