I am a 4th year student in CED passionate about design on a variety of scales and its intersection with sustainability and the natural environment. I have always loved art and creative expression, and have been fortunate enough to turn one of my greatest passions into my studies and future career path. I also love dedicating myself to community development, and find joy in meeting people from across the world.
Hello, everyone! Welcome to the CED website! I am Montse Nava, currently a first year here in CED studying Architecture. I am from Salinas, CA, a little town just outside Monterey which resembles Berkeley in many ways! As an admission ambassador, I look forward to helping you know more about CED here in UC Berkeley and hopefully help make your transition into this college an adjustable and comfortable one. Feel free to reach out if you have questions, concerns or simply want to gain knowledge about what CED can offer!
I enjoy being involved in the community--either in or off campus by volunteering or spreading awareness about ideas and respective solutions. I believe it is immensely important to take a role in actively shaping the direction of community progression. Plus there is always the added benefit of getting to meet new friends!
In my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, eating, photography, and more recently, drone photography. Freshman year I joined Unmanned Aerial Vehicles at Berkeley’s photography team and I have enjoyed every second of it. As a club, we go around to different clubs associated with Berkeley and create videos that highlight what each club stands for. This has become a big interest of mine and I hope to one day go beyond the club and create a short length movie incorporating drones.
I’m passionate about sustainable building design. I also really enjoy hanging out with friends, trying new foods, dancing and hiking!
