Jeremias Gonzalez
University of California, Merced


My name is Jeremias Gonzalez and I have lived in Atwater, California all my life. My parents are both teachers, my mom teaching in elementary school and my dad teaching math in high school. Between the two of them I was taught to have a strong work ethic and was instilled with a passion for all things academic, which has remained with me to today. Currently I am attending UC Merced after two years of Merced Community College, ready to take on more advanced math and physics courses after introductory physics and calculus classes.
