Franky Guardado is a junior at the University of Nevada, Reno pursuing a degree in Biomedical Engineering. He was born and raised in Reno and attended Sparks High School. As a First-Gen student, Franky chose Biomedical Engineering because he really liked the idea of using engineering principles towards things such as medical devices and the human body. He hopes to help create solutions towards health issues we have in the world but more importantly, he hopes to make it more affordable for those that need it. Upon graduation, Franky plans to work with devices such as prosthetics, cardiac pacemakers, nanoparticles, etc.
At the University of Nevada, Reno Franky is also a scholar for the CREATE (“Creating Retention and Engagement for Academically Talented Engineers”) program. He is one of thirty-two students selected for this engineering program funded by the National Science Foundation. Here, Franky works to develop and achieve his goals related to performing as an engineer in the future.
As a Freshman, Franky was an intern for the Clubs and Organizations Department of the 87th session. This helped introduce him to ASUN and what it means to be a part of it. His experience in this internship was what inspired him to apply as a commissioner for the department in the 89th session. Franky wanted to work closely with the leaders on campus and serve as a liaison for his clubs.
During his time in the internship, Franky was the intern for the Sports and Recreation clubs. He has previous experience working with this coalition which is why becoming the commissioner just felt right. Franky loves sports and is an active fan of basketball and fútbol (soccer). He is eager to work alongside these clubs and hopes to bring more awareness to all the great things they are doing!
