About Me

Carlos A. Sanchez
I was born in Mexico, but grew up in North Eastern California. The name of the town is Newell, it is in Modoc county. It is where one of the largest world war II interment camps took place. I am currently a senior at Humboldt State University, majoring in Applied Mathematics. I am fluently in both Spanish and English. So the plan, after I acquire the degree, is to be involved in the community as much as possible. One possibility that I am really considering is to go into teaching. In the mean time I am trying to focus on school and what it offers.
