Giovanni Birrueta's Posts

Giovanni Birrueta, a 21-year-old from Los Angeles, CA, is currently studying Bio Chemistry at Pasadena City College. One of Giovanni's favorite hobbies is drawing. He also likes reading, going on nature walks and watching old movies. Always on the go, Giovanni would opt for the superpower of super speed, so that he could get anywhere in an instant. Giovanni is very excited about the opportunity to attend HACU. He is looking forward to meeting new people and getting to travel to Washington D.C.!

The concurrent session I like the most today was the “CIA: What Type of Leader are You? Understanding Yourself and Your Leadership style”. In this session they went over the different types of leadership by having us take a survey and solve a problem. The four main styles are driver, expressive, amiable, and analytic. After taking the CIAs peer style survey, I found out that I was analytical. Knowing this has highlighted the areas I need to work on to become a more rounded leader. I hope that the concurrent sessions tomorrow are as helpfully as this one! You can try the survey by clicking the link below.

The National Mall is amazing! After having breakfast, we headed towards the national mall. I was really excited on going sightseeing because I had never been there before. The memorials and monuments were captivating with there architectural design and detail. I definitely enjoyed the green scenery and the really friendly squirrels.

HACU conference, here we come!

Posted

Finally finished packing and now I eagerly wait for what tomorrow will bring! This will be the first time I have ever been to Washington D.C. and I am so excited to meet new people and possibly go sightseeing. Though I do not know what the HACU trip will be like, I have feeling this will be a good growing experience for us. I personally can’t wait to see all the science internships and research opportunities the HACU 2012 conference has to offer.

Goodbye Los Angeles, hello Washington D.C.!
