“My mother and father grew up in Mexico, but I was born in California at Camp Pendleton. I was about five when my father, Sergeant Edgar Sanchez USMC, returned home from his service in Iraq. My father’s career as a hydraulics mechanic inspired me to want to study Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech University. My scholastic research is focused on the customization of 3D-printed prosthetics. I also helped design drone attachments to assist with reforestation. As a first-generation college student, support from the MCSF helped make college a reality. I feel the best way I can show my gratitude is to use my skills to help engineer a better world for others.”
