Major: Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Hometown: Madrid, Spain

Hi everyone! My name is Teresa, and I am a sophomore in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department and pursuing certificates in sustainable energy and East Asian studies. I was born and raised in Spain, but I spent my last two years of high school on the beautiful shores of Flekke Fjord in the Norwegian West Coast while attending Red Cross Nordic United World College. Before coming to Princeton, I also participated in the University's Bridge Year Program in China for nine months. These experiences were so impactful that I am now obsessed with traveling and living abroad, which Princeton helps me facilitate through amazing international opportunities.

On campus, I am a dancer and current co-president of Naacho South Asian Dance Company. I work at the Women*s Center, and I am a European Union Program undergraduate fellow. I also volunteer with the DREAM Team through the Pace Center for Civic Engagement. Feel free to reach me at teresai@princeton.edu with any and all questions!
