Nursing major, College of Health, Education, and Human Services


What are your hobbies, and how are you involved on campus?
If I’m not spending my time at the library studying for my classes, sometimes I just walk around and join random activities that are happening. If there is free food, I AM THERE! I also spent time on Wednesday at a bible study last semester. I also hold the position of Alumni Latino Center Student Associate and help Wright State connect with our Latino alumni.

Describe your personality.
Determined, loyal, free-spirited, creative, perfectionist(sometimes), understanding, loving.

What are you passionate about?
I am most passionate about my family. I am the first to go to college. I have to give it my best so later I can have a job I love and help my mom. I am also passionate about Harry Styles.

What are you looking forward to most in mentoring new students?
I am looking forward to being someone who can make others feel welcomed and comfortable. I did not experience this during my first semester, so I want to try to be as helpful to others as I possibly can.
