    Background: I was born in Chihuahua, Mexico but raised in Colorado. I have moved around a lot from Aurora, Commerce City, Denver, Thornton, and Greeley. I am a two-time alumna of UNC. I started as a non-traditional student when I transferred. UNC was just what I wanted. Not too big and not too small to get the full college experience. I received tremendous support from many people on campus and departments such as the Cesar Chavez Cultural Center, Center for Women & Gender Equity, and EMSA. Thanks to the this support I was able to open up about my identities and support other students. During my journey at UNC, I advocated for open access and financial/professional resources for undocumented students. Due to this experience, I learned that my passion was to serve students and I received my masters in Higher Education and Student Affairs Leadership. I wish to continue to support access to higher education of underrepresented populations

    Favorite place at UNC: The Cesar Chavez Cultural Center and The Center for Women & Gender Equity were my favorite places to be as a student. As mentioned,I received tremendous support in these spaces, and they had so many fun events and programming.

    Favorite place in Greeley: Bittersweet Park is my favorite place for evening strolls. It is a nice place to de-stress and take in the view while jogging or walking.

    Favorite UNC fact: The oldest building at UNC is Candelaria and it used to be a bomb/tornado shelter several years ago..

    Favorite Fictional Bear: Boog from Open Season!
