I was born and raised in San Salvador, El Salvador and immigrated to the U.S at the age of eighteen. I lived in Los Angeles, California, where I learned English. I am a junior at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) studying Electrical Engineering. My research interests include transmission lines, and sustainable sources of energy, and engineering management. I aspire to use my talents to make sustainable energy accessible for everyone, and bring power and energy to those communities in El Salvador that up to this date have no access to electricity.
