Hey everyone! I’m currently a sophomore in Forbes potentially majoring in EEB.  My involvement with EWB began when I attended the first meeting for the Peru team. In that meeting, and the meetings to follow, I soon became drawn into the mission and goals of EWB. I loved the idea of working closely with students from all different backgrounds, skill levels, and disciplines, applying our knowledge and learning from one another as we embarked on our task at hand: providing the community members of Peru with a sustainable water system. Wanting to become more involved in EWB, I decided to run for the EWB board, and was fortunate enough to be elected as Secretary. I am definitely looking forwards to this next year as both a member of the board and as co-Project Manager of the Peru team!
