TIES 2018 Scholars

Evelinth Cuero

EE – Scholar since 2018

My name is Luz Evelinth Cuero. I was born in Colombia, but I was raised in Miami, FL. I’m a third year transfer student from Miami Dade College. I am in the Dual Program between Miami Dade College and Gerogia Tech, so I will graduate with a degree from both schools. I am currently participating in the ORS program doing research on digital design. In my spare time I like to read, play the piano or the guitar, draw, dance or watch novelas.

William Diamond

EE – Scholar since 2018

I grew up in Douglas, Georgia. Before I transferred to Georgia Tech, I went to South Georgia State College. My entire life I’ve been interested in computers and electronics. During high school, I began learning about circuits and digital design. I started college as a pre-med, but I quickly realized I had a much stronger passion for electronics. I chose Georgia Tech because of the high standards it has for students, and I knew I would get the most opportunities here. Although I haven’t decided what field I want to go into yet, I do know I want to make a positive impact with my education.

Jacob Hancock

CmpE – Scholar since 2018

I’m a third year Computer Engineering transfer student from Valdosta State University. I grew up in Ochlocknee, GA on my family’s crop production farm. Ever since high school, I have always planned to attend Georgia Tech, and I took dual enrollment classes at Southern Regional Technical College. In the fall after graduation, I transferred to Valdosta State University to join their Regents Engineering Pathways Program with Georgia Tech. While at VSU, I was a member of the Honors Student Association and the National Society of Leadership and Success, where I spent a lot of time volunteering at my college and the Valdosta community. My hobbies include video gaming, reverse engineering broken mechanical and electrical machinery, and especially helping out around the farm. While at Georgia Tech, I plan to take advantage of undergraduate research, internship opportunities, and numerous club organizations while remaining dedicated to my class responsibilities.

CmpE – Scholar since 2018


Nathan Jenkins

EE – Scholar since 2018

My name is Nathan Jenkins and I am a third-year Electrical Engineering student. After high school I spent a year at Gordon State College in Barnesville, GA, and then spent 2 years working as an apprentice electrician. While I enjoyed the work, I was more interested in the design aspect than the installation and maintenance, so I decided to become an electrical engineer. I spent a year at Middle Georgia State University in Macon, GA before transferring to Georgia Tech. In order to discover what I want to do after graduation I have become in extra-curricular activities including RoboJackets and Opportunity Research Scholars.

An Tran

CmpE – Scholar since 2018

I am a third year transfer student from Middle Georgia State University studying Computer Engineering. I decided to transfer to Georgia Tech because I want to challenge myself at a world class institution, and also because of the opportunity that Georgia Tech provides. My technical interest is Computer Systems & Software. In my free time, I usually watch soccer or hang out with my friends.
