My Background: Originally I was born in Morelos, Mexico but grew up the majority of my life in the United States. Therefore, I like to consider myself a Mexican American. Graduating high school and attending college is a dream come true for my parents. As the oldest of five, I want to set the best example I can for my younger siblings. My journey to making my family proud has only just begun.

My Experience at Columbia Basin College: Many doors were shut to me, but CBC gave me a warm welcome with their arms wide open. One of the greatest opportunities offered to me was to be part of the Student Ambassadors Program. I can help give back to my school and community while still getting my degree. From what I've seen, CBC embraces anyone from anywhere with different backgrounds. I'm excited and proud to be part of the Hawk family.

My Future Goals: I want to be a positive impact and make a difference in people's lives, whether it's helping them physically, mentally, or emotionally. In the near future, my goal is to earn my A.A. and transfer to a University in order to finish my studies for Nursing.
