My name is Carmen Engel and I was a recipient of the Ric Gonzalez Memorial Foundation in 2011. I thought I would give you a little update on my life now. I am currently in my fourth year at the University of Virginia. I am studying kinesiology and I mainly focus on special needs children. I hope to graduate in May and then go on to be certified as an Applied Behavioral Analyst. With this job I hope to be a behavioral therapist for children with autism. As of right now what city I will end up in is up in the air but I would love to move to San Francisco. At school I am a member of a sorority, Alpha Phi, and I also love to volunteer around campus. I am involved with Special Olympics, Charlottesville Therapeutic Center and Golden Living Nursing home.
Hope all is going well,
