Aria Mundy recently finished her freshman year at CU Boulder. She has always had a passion for STEM, and had the opportunity to intern at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and volunteer with the Teen Science Café program at CU Boulder during high school. These experiences inspired her to pursue studies in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Math. Aria is particularly interested in the aerospace industry, and she is looking forward to gaining hands-on experience at her internship at Northrop Grumman this summer. Aria is on the executive team for the CU chapter of Women of Aeronautics and Astronautics (WoAA), which brings together individuals with a passion for space exploration who are often underrepresented  in the aerospace industry. She is also a BOLD Scholar and a member of the Engineering Honors Program at CU. Aria was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado. Outside of school, she enjoys biking, skiing, hiking, running, swimming, and enjoying the outdoors. Aria is also a member of the CU Triathlon team.
