I am honored to be recognized as a finalist for the outstanding teaching assistant award 2012-2013. During my time as a PEA student I have been able to travel to over 13 countries, work with passionate and dedicated professors, and share my experiences with new students as a peer mentor. After graduation I hope to continue my education and work with a non-profit group building passive energy homes called Earthships in developing countries and then in the U.S.
