Student Board Member
I am a freshman at The University of Houston Downtown. I am completing my core courses to major in Spanish, my goal is to become a bilingual teacher. I am passionate about becoming a bilingual educator because I have experienced the lack of assistance when it comes to learning a new language. I am participating in SWAG to College because there are many students who need support and encouragement to aspire higher education. I am also participating in a project that takes place in my hometown, Rio Grande, Zacatecas. The project helps economically disadvantaged students finish their desired career. We gather donations that come from hard working people living here at the US, who are also from my hometown. Each year, we host an event in Dallas TX to collect donations and send the money to Mexico.
