Milena was born in Mexico City but has lived in Italy, the United States, and Canada. Even though she loves all four seasons, sunny California reminds her of her hometown, Cuernavaca, Mexico. She graduated on June 2012 from Chemical Engineering and is now co-terming in Atmosphere/Energy. She was a leader in Engineers for a Sustainable World-Stanford (ESW) during her undergrad and has worked on design projects through d.school classes and Stanford ChangeLabs. She hopes to combine her passion for sustainable development with that of renewable energy by addressing climate change and somehow contribute to the shift from fossil fuels to clean sources of energy.
