My name is Alexsander Rivera, I am a senior at San Diego State University, studying civil engineering. I was born and raised in San Diego and I always had an interest in engineering. My interest in engineering started very young for me. I started becoming interested in engineering when I was in middle school because I was in STEM focused classes. Later on in high school, I became interested specifically in civil engineering because in my high school they had many guest speakers that would talk about civil engineering, and those presentations persuaded me to pursue this major. Now skipping forward in time, I am the current executive assistant for ASCE. I am also in the volleyball, soccer, and surveying team for ASCE. ASCE has helped me grow into a more mature and professional individual, by helping improve my skills with presenting, communicating, and working together in a team. I love that ASCE is almost like my second family, because I can count on many people in the club with any help that I need and vice versa. I have had a great time with ASCE so far and I hope to continue that until I graduate.
