I am the coordinator of a federally funded program called, TRIO Student Support Services at Colorado Mountain College, which focused on increasing the rates of academic achievement, retention, and graduation among historically underrepresented students. I am also a co-leader of AJUA (Asociación de Jóvenes Unidos en Acción), a community group created by high school students to empower and advocate for the rights of all immigrants. As an undocumented immigrant, I was proudly the first one in my family to graduate with two Associate’s degrees: physics and business, and a Bachelor’s of Science Degree from Colorado Mountain College.
