My name is Jesus Salas. I am from Eagle Pass, Texas and I am a rising senior, physics major at Texas A&M University, Kingsville. My research goals for graduate school are astrophysics and cosmology. My hobbies are writing fiction stories and playing the piano. In the future I want to be a physics professor at the college level, doing research in astrophysics, but also serve as a guide and mentor to Hispanics students, in order to help increase the number of Hispanics students in physics.
