Create a solar-powered backpack that helps unhoused populations access basic needs. Learn from world-famous author Lemony Snicket in Writers on Writing. Engineer a solar distillation prism that cleans dirty rainwater and stores it for later use.

Building Better Boba
Boba is often sold in single-use plastic cups with wide plastic straws to suck up the tapioca “bubbles.” The few reusable containers on the market often aren’t convenient or spill-proof. So Galina Lang ’21 created her own– the BobaMate, workshopping the plan in her USF classes. In fall 2019, her fundraising efforts went viral, raising nearly $60,000 in just two weeks
Promoting a Post-driver World.
Max Eunice ’21 hit the ground running right after graduation last spring, landing a job with autonomous car company Cruise. Now, as Marketing Manager, he’s sharing the features and benefits of a driverless future.
Championing Community Care
Jacqueline Ornelas ’21 gained practical experience and a deep understanding of systemic injustices as a sociology major at USF. Today, she uses those skills as a Community Wellness Specialist, working to empower families navigating the child welfare system, trauma, and mental health issues at LA nonprofit, Sycamores.
