Why I chose the Berkeley EHS program

I chose Berkeley's EHS program because of the incomparable location of the school, the excellent research opportunities available to students, the distinguished faculty, and the abundance of culture and resources available in the area.

Personal interests 

I enjoy reading, running around Lake Merritt, catching up with shows on Netflix, and cooking traditional Mexican dishes.
