Hector is a freshman engineering student at the University of Colorado Boulder. He is a Colorado native and grew up in Colorado Springs. Hector came out to CU with a positive mindset and has had nothing but fun. He does admit that being an engineering student has its own challenges, but he is determined to conquer all of them. Hector is a member of the CU Men’s volleyball team. He’s a starting outside hitter as a freshman on the team. He says he’s made priceless friendships through the team, and would do his freshman year over again the same exact way if he could.

Matt is convinced that moving to Boulder to attend CU has been the best decision of his life. He fell in love with Colorado and discovered a new passion for snowboarding when he first visited the state in 2010. Matt is now a third year student studying technology, arts and media with hopes to turn his passion for photography into a career. You can find Matt behind the lens shooting for the CU Independent or on the court setting for CU Men’s Volleyball if he doesn’t run into you somewhere downtown. Upon graduating from CU, Matt plans to travel the globe as a photojournalist in hopes to quench his thirst for adventure.
