I was born and raised in Cuba until the age of 20, when I moved to Miami. Now, I am an upcoming senior at FIU. My major is Biomedical Engineering. I study heart valves tissue engineering at my home university. My goal is to continue doing research and complete a PhD in the field, studying the bio-mechanics of hard and soft tissues. In my free time I try to do yoga, watch independent movies and go to the beach.
