My name is Maria A. Vargas Rivera and I am from Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. I am a rising fifth-year Chemistry major at the University of Puerto Rico- Mayaguez. I intend to obtain a PhD in organic or organometallic chemistry, which are my current areas of interest. Outside of campus, you’ll catch me with my friends, playing with my dog, and spending time with my family.
