Fun fact: My favorite superhero is Batman

I was born in Mexico, and I moved to the United States when I was 13 years old. Since a very young age,  I had an interest in machinery of every kind, including cars and planes. I’ve always wanted to create something of that sort, so I want to concentrate in mechanical engineering. I’m particularly excited about PSP because I like the idea of being a part of a group. I take pride in the relationships that I can build, and I believe PSP can give me just that and possibly even more.
