Hello fellow SWEsters, my name is Ingrid Arambula and I am a Chemical Engineering major with a Geology minor. I am one of two Region Collegiate Representatives (RCR) for Region C this year. I first joined SWE at the University of Houston three years ago as the Outreach Chair. I absolutely loved this position because I was able to combine the two things I love most, which are outreach programs and teaching. Last year I became section President through which I learned and practiced being a student leader. This year I transferred to Texas Tech University and am now an RCR for our region. I am absolutely enjoying being an RCR because I am able to oversee all the collegiate sections. As RCR my role is to answer all your questions and bring together sections ideas.
