About Melinda:

Hey! My name is Melinda and I am a freshman hoping to double major in electrical engineering and computer science with a potential minor in German. I was born in Midland, Michigan, but lived in both Texas and Germany before moving back here to Michigan. A lot of my free time is spent outdoors backpacking, hiking, kayaking, etc so I’m always keen for a walk in the Arb or a stroll by the river. I love talking and am always up for a conversation; I’m happy to discuss just about anything! I’m part of a few student organizations on campus including BLUElab and Society of Women Engineers, and am currently looking for a dance group to join. To relax I (attempt) to do yoga and am a notorious binge watcher of Netflix. All in all, I am looking forward to another great year at Telluride and U of M!
