How has the TTS Program helped you?
TTS has helped me so much. I want to thank my advisor, Beatriz Perez for being such a supportive person and amazing role model. I feel comfortable to be able to go to her for any questions or concerns I have in my academic journey. She’s been able to motivate me to push through the best I can.
What keeps you motivated and positive throughout life’s hardships?
As a first generation college student, I am extremely motivated to succeed. I want to be able to be in a career, being able to give to students what I was fortunate enough to receive through my college career- someone I could comfortably talk to and ask for any advice. I want to be able to make it to the end of my academic journey and be able to support myself and my family. That’s my biggest motivation.
What advice would you like to give to your fellow scholars?
Don’t be afraid to ask for help, even if it seems hard. Keep trying to move forward, but don’t forget to enjoy the journey. Finally, be sure to prioritize yourself.
What are your plans after graduation?
To be in my masters program. Working hard until I get to become a college counselor.
