Evelyn is a junior pursuing a degree in chemical engineering from West Chicago, Illinois. She decided to pursue engineering because she really fell in love with math and science ever since elementary school- specifically chemistry when she got to high school. With the help of her teachers and counselor, she discovered she could combine both of her passions into one degree. She also wants to be able to work in the renewable energy field to implement new sustainable forms of energy in people’s everyday lives. Besides engineering, Evelyn plays volleyball and badminton recreationally. She is also a member of UIC Chaarg since she’s a big fitness fanatic and loves to exercise/lift. Whenever she has some free time from schoolwork, she loves to read.
