Brother

He/Him/His

San Diego, CA

Marco is a fourth-year in Sixth College studying Electrical Engineering with a focus in Machine Learning and Controls. Having a business minor on the side, Marco is hoping to combine his knowledge of engineering with business to pursue Product Management.

 

Coming from a heavily Latino community, Marco has made an effort to connect with the Hispanic communities at UCSD, he is involved in both SHPE (Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers) and Hermanos Unidos. As a first-generation student, he hopes to return the same support that was given to him to get into his childhood dream university. Today, he is grateful for all opportunities he has received to have gotten this far.  

 

In Marco's free time, he enjoys reading nonfiction books and playing his guitar to rock or indie music. He also makes an effort to live an active lifestyle by cycling, meditating, and going to the gym. If you can't find him at Geisel, he is most likely on an impulsive solo trip in Mexico. Marco loves to meet new people, he strongly believes that every person holds a story and a lesson. This holds true especially in Alpha Kappa Psi, as Marco has learned that every member is passionate about their ambitions and goals. He has learned from the best mentors in AKPsi and will become the same for others.
