Diego Corbella

KIPP Texas Public Schools – San Antonio

Diego, an alum at KIPP University Prep High School, member of National Honors Society since freshman year and part of the senior leader committee, is excited to attend the University of Texas at Austin while double majoring in civil engineering and finance. Having previously worked with a civil engineer in a self-sustainable farm project sparked his interest in land development, as well as the technical aspect of how complex buildings come to life along with its relation to physics and chemistry. Being a first gen student in a single parent household prompted him to develop time management and critical thinking skills at an early age, which have helped him to be successful both inside and outside of school. Additionally, he finds joy in helping his community and others by volunteering in different types of community service events such as food drives. In the future he plans to increase the quality of life in his community by improving the overall infrastructure and support students who have similar struggles as his.
