One of the most rewarding experiences of my Stanford career was my time spent abroad. I participated in both the Stanford in Berlin program in Germany and the Stanford in Kyoto program in Japan. While at Stanford, I founded the Queer University Employees at Stanford(QUEST), and also started the Lambda Particles, a support/social group for LGBT persons and their allies at SLAC. I also founded the Stanford Queer Engineers and Scientists(SQUEAS) while I was still a student. I was also very active in the Stanford Society of Chicano/Latino Engineers and Scientists(SSCLES).
