Hey there, Iím Evan Kinney. I am a 19 year old, studying Computer Graphics at Purdue University. Here at Purdue I donít only do academics, I am also involved in a few extracurricular activities. The first of these is EPICS, it is a community service based design class. My current project for the class is to design a cost effective way to distribute soy milk to orphan children in the streets of Hyderabad, India. I am also involved with Engineers Without Borders. Our project as a club is to design and implement a biogas digester in a remote village in Uganda. Itís not all work though, I am also a member of The Purdue Outing Club. I have done so many things with the club including rock climbing trips to West Virginia and Kentucky. This spring break I along with some other members of the club are driving out to Moab, Utah to mountain bike for a week. The Purdue Outing Club is what really turned me on to Bike & Build. We have a few members that have done Bike & Build and advocate heavily for it. Talking to them helped me understand how much of an impact those summers had made on them. After seeing how it impacted them I decided to sign up. This was a big choice because last summer I worked as an undergraduate researcher at Ohio State, and had the job next summer if I wanted it. That being said I am extremely excited to have this opportunity. I think that this will be one of if not the most amazing thing I will do in my lifetime. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I want to thank everyone ahead of time for their support.
