Cynthia is from Pasadena, TX and is Chemistry major. She wanted to join UTeach Outreach to explore the field of teaching, something that she is interested in doing. She is looking forward to seeing the 6th graders at the end of year STEM competition. She loves seeing how much UTeach Outreach has impacted them throughout the semester. After graduation, Cynthia plans on going back home and teach there. What inspires her is her parents. She is a first-generation Mexican-American and has never met anyone more inspiring, supportive, and hard working than her parents.
Her favorite movies are the Lord of the Rings trilogy. She says that "The movies were filmed in such a beautiful country, and it is my dream to visit the Hobbiton movie set in New Zealand one day." She also has a cat named Fluffy who is the love of her life.
