Hey, my name is Luis Medina and I am the ASCE Historian for the 2018-2019 school year. I was born in East Palo Alto and raised in Modesto so i’ve been in California my entire life. I am a third year studying Civil Engineering. I chose Civ-E because of the fact that I was raised in a family of construction workers and I often found myself in the middle of these work sites. I am the current Historian for ASCE which is essentially an events photographer. I am by no means a photography pro, but I do enjoy taking pictures. I am excited to become more involved in my second year of ASCE. My first year was great and I know the second year will get better because of all the great people I’ve met and still have to meet. I am looking forward to growing both socially and professionally with this great organization. Since I’ve joined ASCE, I have gotten more excited about my major and all the things to come. This organization has helped me explore many things related to my future career. I think joining ASCE will benefit every Civil/Construction/Environmental engineer.
