I’ve decided to attend ACC in order to develop and support sustainable and renewable energy technologies that our planet desperately needs and to earn a living wage while working in a career that I love. Through receiving generous scholarship support I’ve been able to continue my school career with ACC through the Electronics department, expand my leadership skills and give back to my community.

I am currently the President of Austin RESA (Renewable Energy Student Association) and have been the lead producer along with two RESA officers of the Greener Choices Earth Day Festival which was held at ACC, Riverside Campus, on Earth Day April 22nd 2014.

I intend to be a part of this revolution to change the planet for the better and hope other will join me in this mission.
