About: I am a junior at the School of Informatics and Computing with a specialization in 3D Animation. I am from Brazil, Indiana, and grew up in a small rural town surrounded by woods and cornfields, but moved to the bigger cities to continue my education. I transferred to IUPUI after graduating from Ivy Tech Community College with a degree in Visual Communications and Photography.
I am the first in my family to go through college. I want to turn my passion for leadership and service into a career while still creating a better world through my work. I would like to work with Pixar or create children’s movies/games.
In college, I have assumed many leadership roles. I am a current student ambassador for SOIC and I was an ambassador when I attended Ivy Tech. I also took student leadership courses, which helped as I was chapter president the local chapter of the international Honor Society Phi Theta Kappa.
My goal is to help others succeed and achieve their goals, as I got help getting through college at first. So, I look forward to the opportunity to meet new students and maybe help along the way to your success story.
