What does #iLookLikeAnEngineer mean to you?

It means to me that anything is possible, anyone can achieve their goals. You don't have to be of a certain race or certain gender to be an engineer. The hashtag means that engineers are as diverse as the whole world. No one story is the same.

What are three things that make you unique?

1. First Generation American and College student.
2. My Mexican heritage
3. Professional Youtube Creator.

What are your career goals?

I ultimately want to have my own business. I want to use my engineering degree to create a business that create homes for people.

Do you have a favorite quote or mantra?

“I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.”- MewTwo

What are your hobbies?

I have a passion for creating videos for the public, so far I reached over 1 million views on YouTube.

What do you enjoy most about engineering?

The vast amount of options it gives you. Engineering allows me to be creative and unique.
