Project Leads

El Pital - Saori Nishimura

My name is Saori Nishimura and I am a third-year Chemical and Biological Engineering student from Mexico. I love being involved with Rams Without Borders because it is exposing me to experiences that are related to my major.

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.
