Canaan Delgado ’21
Major: Environmental Engineering and Information Science
Concentration: User Interface/User Experience
The issue of public concern I’m passionate about is … environmental degradation.
Engagement experience: Hurricane María relief effort mission with US Army, Reforestation of Amazon Rainforest in Brazil with Harvard, Rotary International
As an Engaged Ambassador, I … intend on empowering our campus with the tools necessary to make real world impacts in society.
I got involved because … I have always wanted to help. Seeing that Engaged Cornell gives students the ability to take their desires of world change to the forefront of real international quagmires, I couldn’t help but get involved!
My friends would say I’m … crazy and full of humor!
Best Cornell memory (so far!): When I spent $120 one night at Nasties because, well, I was hungry after a long night of dancing.
Fun fact: I was the Speed Stacks champion of my school in sixth grade!
Future plans: Travel the world, go to Yale Law School (fingers crossed) and adopt a pomsky named Chewy.
