My name is Sergio Chacon, and I have been living in Colorado my whole life. I come from a loving Mexican family. I have all my success to thank to my family for their support and sacrifice. Thanks to their gift of education, I find myself pursuing a bachelor’s degree in physics with an emphasis in engineering here at UNC. After my time here at UNC, I hope to continue my education by pursuing graduate school. My goal is to earn my Ph.D. in physics and use my education to teach at a university somewhere here in the states. I hope to not only work with college students but to also help promote science in underprivileged schools in my area.
