Class Year: 2026 Major: Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Hometown: Barcelona Email: Pronouns: she/her

Hi everyone! My name is Gina Arnau and I am an international student from Barcelona. I'm majoring in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering with potential certificates in Astrobiology and Materials Science and Engineering, as in the future I would like to develop sustainable spacecraft to find life in other worlds. 

Outside of academics, I am an active member of Princeton's Spaceshot, where I am contributing to build a two-stage rocket to send to space. I am also a flutist for Sinfonia (aka the best musical ensemble on campus) and a member of the Electric Propulsion and Plasma Dynamics Laboratory. Besides playing the flute, I also enjoy drawing, baking, traveling, and watching sports (let's go tigers!!). Spending time with my friends and walking around Princeton's beautiful campus are also some of the activities I enjoy doing in my free time. 

I am more than excited to share my experience in Princeton, so feel free to reach out to me with any questions about campus life, engineering, my experience as an international student, or any other questions!
