Chemical Engineering

Hi! My name is Selena Martinez. I am a fourth year chemical engineering major and I am also pursuing a minor in physics. I have lived in Colorado my whole life, my favorite color is forest green and I have a 6-month-old kitten named Pinches (yes, I have lots of pictures). I love to dance, paint/sketch, sing, write, snowboard, wakeboard and hike. I have climbed six 14er’s in Colorado on my own (my goal is all 58) and I am part of the hiking club at CU. I listen to every kind of music (yes, that includes country) but I tend to get caught listening to the same songs so I would love any music recommendations if you have them! I am a Hufflepuff for any of you Potterheads out there, but my favorite nerdy movies are Lord of the Rings (one of my tattoos is in elvish). As far as my life goals go, I want to get into pharmaceuticals or renewable energy when I graduate and work towards improving the lives of others or the condition of our planet. I look forward to meeting everyone and I hope that I can help you all have a fantastic first year at CU!
