Computer Engineering & Computer Science, ’21
Bell Gardens, CA
Hey, welcome to my page!
I’m Luz, a rising sophomore studying Computer Engineering and Computer Science hailing from Bell Gardens, California, a tiny city just about 30 minutes from USC! On campus, I’m really involved with the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) and also the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), both on which I serve on different committees in an effort to allow both organizations to better serve their members. This year I did a co-op at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where I worked on an automated testing system for Cubesats and during the summer I will be interning at Facebook under their Facebook university program. As a local, I spend a lot of my free time exploring everything LA has to offer time by visiting favorite spots like Santa Monica and concert venues like the Echoplex and The Roxy.

My Major: Computer Engineering & Computer Science
How did I pick my major?
Before coming to USC, I had never even touched a breadboard or written a single piece of code in my life. I chose my major, computer engineering, because it was a bridge between two fields I knew absolutely nothing about that would thus push me out of my comfort zone to attempt to learn something completely new!

Favorite LA Spots
My Netflix Obsessions
This buddy cop show staring Andy Samberg has just about everything one could ask for: smart, witty writing, a diverse cast, lovable characters, and corgis. Who doesn’t love corgis?
My favorite British comedian takes a crack at American politics by covering important news stories of the week and HBO gives him the backing to pull off his eccentric style of humor.
Favorite USC Tradition
The legendary USC tailgate before every USC football game is my favorite school tradition. There is just something in being swept up in the outpouring school spirit and pride that even a person who knows nothing about sports like myself can find a lot of joy in, whether you’re there to to brag about Trojan football or just for there for the food.
