I'm a senior at The Met HIgh School, ready to continue my education and work with communities in need. This year, I have to complete a Senior Thesis Project as it is an expection towards graduation. The topic of my research is the history of engineering in Mexico and so for my product I will be traveling to Chiapas, Mexico to build a playground for the underserved community. My plan is to work with the Rise Now Organization; a nonprofit organization that works with communities in Southern Mexico to facilitate the creation of playgrounds and other sustainable building projects in underserved communities. Through using recycled materials they aim to teach and promote sustainability for both international and local volunteers, as well as improve cultural understanding and foster social and environmental responsibility.
