My Story
I was born and raised in Mexico. My family and I moved to the States when I was 16 years old.

High school was very challenging for me because I was in a school where there were almost no Latinos and it was a big language and culture barrier. Thanks to one of my teacher's support I was able to graduate high school.

I moved to Colorado right after graduation and have been here ever since. I knew I wanted to go to college, but I was not sure how to start or where to go. My sister-in-law told me to go to FRCC and ask for information about how to start. I went to the Boulder County Campus in Longmont where I learned what out-of-state tuition was and how expensive it is. I waited for about three years to become an in-state student and worked to save money to go back to school. After becoming in-state, I enrolled at FRCC.

My journey at FRCC was longer than I planned, but I was able to apply and be accepted to Colorado State University – Fort Collins. After changing my major four times, I found the career that I love and I am passionate about it. Now I am back where everything started and I am excited to share my journey with others. To let students and families know that even when they think they can't reach their goals or there are setbacks in their life, I am here to support them.
