Featured CNAS Ambassadors


Jennifer Fairbrother-  4th Year, Applied Mathematics/Physics 




 "Being an ambassador has been more than just representing my college. I've made friends, created professional contacts and met some very inspiration people. I love representing CNAS, especially for a more underrepresented major, mathematics and physics, and of course as a female, who are already underrepresented in the sciences anyway.  Along with playing soccer for UCR and multiple sports, such as football, soccer and volleyball, for UCR IMs, I have also done research with the mathematics department and am part of other student and off campus organizations.  Being active in my community and for my college are important aspects of my life and I appreciate every door the ambassadors have opened for me and have loved to be a part of it for every moment."


 If you were a geometric shape what would you like to be?
"If I were a geometric shape, I would probably be a circle because of how well rounded I hope to always be. I have also been called a perfectionist before and when I think of a more perfect shape, a completely symmetric circle seems most appropriate."
Tell us about what animal you wish you could be and why?
"I'm not sure if I'd want to be one, but my favorite animal is definitely a giraffe because of their height and how interesting of creatures they are to me, I don't know why I've just always been fascinated. As far as being an animal though, I think a cat would be appropriate, especially seeing as my roommate and I tend to meow at each other as communication...yeah, we are crazy cat ladies."
What is your favorite color?
"My favorite color, or colors really, are Black and Red. My brothers favorite was always blue as a kid, of course, I wanted to like the opposite. I also went to and played soccer for Centennial High in Corona where our colors were red, black and white."
How are you feeling right now? 
"Right now, I'm feeling a mixture of emotions. For one, I'm extremely hopeful for my future and my last quarter here at UCR, as I'll be graduating in March to walk with my class in June this year. But on the other hand, I'm feeling pretty down and upset about the comeback from the Seattle Seahawks against the Green Bay Packers in the NFL playoff game. Packers almost got that Super Bowl slot, but I guess we will have to wait for next year for our chance again. Hopefully, Aaron Rodgers will still get MVP this year! Go Pack Go!"
Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
"As for my future, I hope to have been accepted in to the nuclear propulsions program in the United States Navy, to be working in Washington DC as a nuclear engineer for my country. I am currently in the process of applying to the program and if accepting, in 5 years I should be close to making a decision about whether to remain in the Navy or retire to a civilian life."
