Awards/Honors: Dean’s List, Fall 2012, Spring and Fall, 2013, and Spring 2014

What are your plans after graduation? After graduation I plan to enroll in the Creative Writing graduate program to better develop my writing skills. Once I receive my master’s degree, I’d like to work as a freelance writer. I’m also working on a book right now so hopefully I can get it published within the next five years.

Do you plan to stay in the Valley? Although I am not originally from the Valley, the community here has been very welcoming to me and my family. It has been our home away from home. We plan on being here for at least a little while, but eventually I would like to seek job opportunities closer to my hometown in Indiana.

What has your education done for you? My education has opened up so many opportunities for me. It has gotten me outside of my comfort zone and has really helped me see a side of myself that I didn’t know existed before.

How do you feel about your UTPA experience? My experience at UTPA has been invaluable. I attended another university before joining the military and I believe the professors and lecturers at UTPA are top of the line. They really connect with students and make classes interesting. They give students the tools they need to excel, not only in the classroom, but also outside the classroom.

What is your best tip for success? Keep your goals in mind and your priorities straight. It was hard for me at first to find the balance between being a wife, a mother and a student. Finding that balance between personal life and academics has really helped me succeed.

What advice do you have for college-bound students? Find what you are passionate about and follow it. It is also important to make goals. Even if you fall short, setting goals will give purpose to your actions.

Awards/Honors: Dean’s List, Fall 2010

What are your plans after graduation? My plan right after graduation is to obtain a position in law enforcement with a state agency and obtain career experience that will make me a more competitive applicant for a position in the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Do you plan to stay in the Valley? I would enjoy staying in the Valley since it has become my home and the home of my best memories so far, but realistically my career will probably take me elsewhere. In any case, I have lived in many places throughout my years and starting the next chapter of my life in a new place is an exciting thought.

What has your education done for you? Other than the obvious, the biggest impact my education has given me is the opportunity to meet such an amazing cast of mentors, from fellow students, to co-workers and supervisors, to a select group of professors who have treated me with great respect and kindness. It wouldn’t have been fun, nor possible, without them.

How do you feel about your UTPA experience? I wouldn’t change it for anything else. UTPA is a beautiful campus with great opportunities. As I finish my last two months here, the thought of how much the environment here has changed me is amazing. I have grown tremendously, learned so much and met so many people. I am confident that I made the best out of my college experience and the family I have become a part of through Phi Kappa Theta is an honor that can’t be challenged.

What is your best tip for success? Get ahead of the game. One of the differences of being a college student compared to high school is the amount of free time you have. Use that free time to get an internship related to what you want to do. It’s the best way to obtain related experience, meet and network with individuals in your area of study and to find out if that is the area in which you truly want to be in.
What advice do you have for college-bound students? Make UTPA your home away from home. There are more than 200 clubs and organizations to join so find the ones that you belong in. Being involved on campus has many benefits, but the biggest one I would say is that you develop motivation and a drive to succeed for your organizations and the people involved in them. It often times brings out the leader in you. You meet great people, become exposed to awesome experiences, learn many things, and ultimately, you create a bigger purpose and reason to keep working for that degree.

It has opened doors as well as given me many great opportunities that challenge my abilities not only as a student but also as a leader. My education has given me the chance to get to know many people and learn from their experiences. It also has allowed me to make a difference in other people’s lives.

How do you feel about your UTPA experience? My experience at UTPA has been amazing. The University has given me the chance to participate in activities that seemed impossible, like going abroad, meeting so many people and other experiences that had never crossed my mind. I have truly had the full university experience.

What is your best tip for success? My best tip for success is to never let anyone put you down. If someone says you can’t do it, proving him or her wrong is the best thing you can do.

What advice do you have for college-bound students? My advice for future college students is to be as involved as they can be. It is one of the best ways to make friends and new memories while helping them grow as individuals and as leaders in the community.

What is your best tip for success? Balance is critical. We want to be the best, so we must treat ourselves that way. Work hard, but remember we have to find light, love, and laughter wherever we can.

What advice do you have for college-bound students? Read! Find a topic that interests you and cultivate a love of reading. Reading, widely and without ceasing, is my secret weapon.

What has your education done for you? My education has helped me grow in every facet of life. It’s opened my mind and heart to see what the world has to offer. I’ve realized that there are an infinite number of opportunities available for us, however, it’s up to us to pursue them. I’ve learned how to be a hard worker who is determined, strong-willed, and passionate, while remaining kind and humble.

How do you feel about your UTPA experience? UTPA has been incredible! I’d never seen such a close bond between a president and his students. The professors in the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department (COMD) have been a blessing and a true inspiration to my peers and myself; our little COMD family is my home away from home.

What is your best tip for success? I have many tips for success. Money doesn’t always equal happiness. If you love what you’re doing and you’re passionate enough, you will succeed indefinitely. Kindness, determination, and passion are key. Never give up or let anybody tell you that you don’t have what it takes to succeed. Lots of laughter, love, and Jesus have gotten me through the worst days and the best years of my life. Soak in every moment because life passes so fast.

That is why, upon return from law school, I plan to dedicate my life as a public servant to this region. I want to return all the gracious favors the blessed people of South Texas have delivered unto me.

What has your education done for you? Although I know that one’s education is never complete, I am proud of the very near conclusion of my undergraduate career.
