|Andrea Mugroo, Secretary & Treasurer
My name is Andrea, and I am in my sophomore computer science major at UCF. I was born and raised in New York then moved to Florida for my undergraduate degree. Growing up, I’ve always had a fascination with biology and mathematics, but truly enjoyed working with technology; I took any and every tech classes my school offered! At UCF, I’ve taken multiple general education courses and many courses related to my major of computer science. I’ve grown my love for creating something from nothing, and learning different programming languages including C and Java. Aside from being the Treasurer and Secretary of WEECS, I am also a part of EXCEL, GEMS, and am a STEM Ambassador, in which I represent UCF in advocating for STEM education to students in K-12 schools around Orlando.
Aside from school, I love hanging with my friends and meeting new people! I also enjoy photography, going to Disney World, and watching movies. I have a great passion for adventure and hope to travel the world one day.
