“I loved being part of this experience. I know there are no small efforts, everything adds up, and many wills are required to make a change. Our planet needs it. I am proud that my alma mater is part of this project, and I hope this will continue and many more people will join” said Deneb Campos Martinez, Industrial Engineering graduate.
