Hometown: Brownsville, Texas
If you had an autobiography, what would the title be?
The Pursuit of Happiness
What book has been influential in your life and why?
The Great Gatsby, because it shows you that money is not everything in life because it cannot buy happines and love.
If you could travel back in time, where would you go?
I would go back to World War II.
What is it that most excites you about the journey you’re about to begin?
What most excites me is the fact that I am starting to work in accomplishing my dreams and my future career.
Why are you and UTB a good match?
Imagine yourself in four years at graduation. What will you be thinking?
It is home in so many ways.
What are your favorite activities outside of academics?
I like being involved on campus as a Freshman Senator and Senator Pro Tempore for the Student Governmnet Association because it gives me an opportunity to help in many ways here at the university. I also like to attend the events here on campus, watch movies, and spend time with my friends as it helps me relieve stress and have some fun.
I would be looking at my family and how they will be filled with pride as all of our hardwork finally pays off as I become a first generation college graduate
