My name is Elizabeth Gallardo Hevia. I was born in Cuba and raised in Canada. I currently attend Florida International University pursuing a bachelor’s in biomedical engineering. I enjoy playing sports, playing the piano, meeting new people and learning from them. This summer I will be working in the field of biomechatronics in MIT’s Media Lab. I plan on pursuing a Ph.D. in this field in the upcoming years.
