Chemical Engineering
Spring 2021

Hello! My name is Jasmin Lopez and I’m a junior at Georgia Tech studying chemical engineering. I am a first-gen latinx student on a mission to design a more equitable world for all. When I was a kid, I used to tell my mom I would become president of her home country El Salvador and fix the broken system she escaped from. Unfortunately, I never found a way around the little issue that I’m not a citizen of El Salvador, but my passion remains to help people who face starvation and hardship in food deserts around this country. This past spring, I got the opportunity to work on Capitol Hill as a Congressional Intern focused on climate policy research to better understand the role engineers can play in systemic change. Presently, I am serving as the President of Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW) and leading a community green wall project. I’m excited for this opportunity with Voiz because I see it as a unique way to expand my knowledge of sustainability and applying what I’ve learned from my prior experiences. In my freetime, I love to shuffle to electronic music, work in community gardens, and watch Youtube videos.
