Monica Ochoa

Aerospace Engineering, senior
 Monica is a junior from sunny Los Angeles, California. When she was little, she and her dad used to climb up to their house’s roof and watch the few stars visible through all the LA smog. That sparked her curiosity in space and engineering. She hopes to one day work on the mission to Mars, specifically on the structural components of different systems. She hopes to set an example for minority women in STEM fields by showing that anything is possible with perseverance and hard work. During her free time, Monica enjoys playing soccer, dancing and watching movies.
