Engineers Without Borders

Meet the Officers

President - Allie Huber

Hello! My name is Allie Huber and I am a senior studying Civil Engineering. I’m super excited to be serving as president of this club for 2019. EWB has been an amazing opportunity for me to gain experience outside of the classroom while learning things I haven’t been taught in school, like financial planning and communications. I also love having the ability to make a difference in communities across the globe. Outside of EWB, I’m a member of CSU’s co-ed service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, and I work at the College of Business. I also love to read, cook, run, and travel.

VP - Delaney Collier

Delaney Collier

Hello! I’m Delaney Collier. This is my fourth year in civil engineering and I’m concentrating on structures. This is my third year with the club and I’m currently vice president! I love everything this club stands for and all of the people who are involved. There are no greater opportunities in life than those that allow for helping others while simultaneously doing something you are passionate about. Engineers Without Borders gives this opportunity to anyone who is willing to take it and I couldn’t be more thankful.

Treasurer - Martha Fasil Yilma

Biography to come!

Secretary - Janaye Walker

Hi there! My name is Janaye Walker and I’m in my fourth year of studying Civil Engineering and Spanish. I’m so excited to be serving as RWB’s secretary this year! I am a Colorado native, and I would love to someday live and work abroad. While I have not traveled with RWB, I spent two weeks in Jamaica last summer helping build houses and a schoolyard in the village of Catadupa. In my free time I like to sing, play guitar, and listen to musical soundtracks.

ECC Rep - Chereen Zahner

Hi, my name is Chereen Zahner and I am a Senior Civil Engineering student with a minor in math. I am the ECC rep for Rams without Borders and I have been the ECC rep many times over the last 3 years. I love the mission of Rams without Borders and I enjoy the rewarding work that we do everyday to help the international communities that really need our help. I love being a part of the club and I love our members! I hope to carry my knowledge of my major with me as I pursue these projects and as I continue my Rams without Borders mission in the future! I couldn’t of asked to be a part of a better club!

Chairs

Fundraising - Swee Suen Tee

Everyone starts with Hi! Hello! and to be honest, it’s no fun. So, I figured I would it differently. First of all, where can you find Swee (there you go, names)? Walter Scott Jr. building, taking whatever classes environmental engineers (my major) should take; Library, you might find me there, napping on one of those couches; Gym, probably nowhere to be found. After living for a year (sophomore) in Fort Collins, I’d say I know the city well enough, maybe. Other details about me, I prefer talking in person. You’re AWESOME if you read till the end and if you didn’t, I don’t blame you.

Public Outreach and Education - Tierney Johnson

I am a junior studying Chemical and Biological Engineering. EWB has been the best part of my college career and I am so excited to serve this wonderful organization. My favourite things to do outside of EWB are hiking, reading and of course eating.

Technology - Trinity Peters

Hello all! My name is Trinity Peters, and I am a second year student studying Environmental Engineering, serving as Tech Chair for CSU EWB! I am a HUGE nerd at heart with a passion for math, science, video games, board games, reading, and more, but I also enjoy playing soccer/flag football, hiking, running, photography, traveling, and surrounding myself with plants and animals 🙂 New adventures? Count me in! Also, make sure to follow us on instagram, twitter, and facebook as I will be constantly updating each with upcoming information for our meetings and fun events!

Fun - Isaiah Chavez

Hey! I’m Isaiah, a third year environmental engineering student currently serving as the membership services chair. This semester I’m hoping to bring the club together more as a community and have more exciting events!

PMEL - Mariah Wang

Hi everyone! My name is Mariah Wang. I am in my 4th out of five studying Environmental Engineering. Aside from being a busy student, I enjoy doing archery (even though I am terrible at it), kayaking, gallery hopping and spending some lazy days hanging out with friends, while I also find it calming when I run or meditate; in fact, one of my three new year resolutions this year is to finish a half marathon, and I have been training towards that goal. On top of that, “[o]ne way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure” is one of my favorite quotes – I take my life as an adventure, and my brain just gets so excited whenever I am exposed to something new and different, whether it’s experimenting VR, jumping out of an airplane, learning about how to sail a catamaran, or even just trying out a new flavor of ice cream 🙂

Project Leads

La Criba - Zakri Siegel

My name is Zakri Siegel, and I am an Environmental Engineering major here at CSU. I love skiing, traveling, exercising, and watching movies. I am currently the project lead for the La Criba Project in El Salvador here at Engineers Without Borders. I love EWB because it provides a way to utilize my skill set to assist others who may otherwise not have the help. I hope to learn and help as much as I can, while helping others do so as well here at CSU.

La Criba - Maliea Van

Maliea Van

Hey! My name is Maliea Van and I am a sophomore studying Chemical/Biological and Biomedical Engineering. I am currently the project lead for the La Criba project. I love Engineers Without Borders because it allows us to use our skills and engineering knowledge to make a real positive impact on people’s lives. I am super excited to be traveling to La Criba, El Salvador in the spring to help implement some of our projects! In my free time I love hiking, camping, traveling, skiing, and reading.

Pine Ridge - Ben Platt

Hi all! My name is Ben Platt, and I’m from Golden, CO. I’m in my fourth year out of five studying Mechanical Engineering at CSU. I also have minors in global and environmental sustainability and sustainable energy. I’ve been in Rams Without Borders since my freshman year working on the energy team for Pine Ridge. I think RWB is great because students can use their technical experience and apply it to a real-world project that helps better the lives of others.  I’ve also been an RA (resident assistant) for two years now, I’m currently serving my third year in Aspen Hall. I love photography and take a lot of scenic photos on my many excursions hiking, backpacking, and skiing.

Pine Ridge - Priscilla Vazquez

Priscilla Vázquez is in her fourth year as an electrical engineering major at Colorado State. She has been an active member of the EWB community, for over two years, serving first as ECC Representative, then as Secretary. An accomplished photographer before coming to CSU, she has produced several videos for the organization, as well as shot many of the images featured on this site. She enjoys traveling, learning new skills, and exploring the world through YouTube.

El Pital - Hope Carlson

My name is Hope Carlson and I am a first-year Environmental Engineering student from South Dakota. I love being involved with Rams Without Borders because it is exposing me to experiences that are related to my major. The El Pital project is interesting to me because I want to work with water systems in the future. I also love traveling and experiencing different cultures, so this project gives me the ability to that without even leaving campus. I am excited to be getting more involved in Rams Without Borders and hope to hold leadership positions in my upcoming years. During my freetime I enjoy being active outside with my friends and enjoying the view of the mountains.

El Pital - Swee Suen Tee
