Christopher amaro (he/him/his)

senior student lead


Hello! My name is Christopher Amaro and I am a first-generation college student. I was born in San Francisco and grew up in the Peninsula region of the Bay Area. 


After college I will be entering the civil engineering industry, working towards obtaining my professional engineer's licensure (PE). When I’m not being academic or conducting work with an organization, you can find me outside running the mountains in SLO county. I welcome any and all questions and will do my best to support Dream Center Students.
