I Found My Niche at Harvey Mudd College

Student Name: Mary Jessie Celestin

School: Harvey Mudd College

Major: Engineering

“My name is Mary Jessie Celestin and most all that I do can be distilled to world building: the process of constructing an imaginary world and building it in reality. I am a senior engineering major at Harvey Mudd College with goals to redesign the modern day city through smart infrastructure development and human centered design. I am also the founder of San José Strong (@sanjose_strong): a grassroots organization to reinvent San José for and by the community. I am a neo-soul singer/songwriter (you can find my music under ‘maryjessie’ on all platforms!), fantasy author, and STEM curriculum developer/teacher. In my free time, I love hanging out with my friends and family, listening to music, and going on long walks/runs!”—@mary_celestin
