Hi everyone, my name is Rubisela (Rubi) Gonzalez. I was born and raised in San Diego and I'm a 3rd year Civil Engineering student. Growing up I always liked STEM and would build Lego bridges and roller coasters, which is what inspired me to study Civil Engineering. I joined ASCE in 2017 and this year I am co-captain for the Transportation Team. I love our ASCE Chapter because everyone is so friendly and you get to make so many connections. Joining ASCE as a freshman was one of the best decisions I made and it has helped me so much in my education and career. If you are looking to make some friends or gain experience, joining some of the technical teams is a great way to start!
