SHPE Position


About Me

I am a junior at the University of North Texas where I am majoring in Computer Science. After studying as a business major for two years, my decision to switch majors has allowed me to rediscover the purpose and curiosity I felt when studying engineering in high school. Currently, I am the SHPE UNT 2022-2023 officer, and I am beyond excited and grateful to be a part of this organization.
