- Additional Information: At another university, I was a faculty mentor for first-generation students.
- Although both my parents went to college, I associate with first-generation students having grown up in San Antonio with large Hispanic populations. The first-generation students actually asked me to be the faculty mentor and I proudly accepted.
- I organize the annual suicide (charity) walk, which I'm proud of. Last year, it snowed during the walk but we still walked. I'm so proud of the participants who walked and students who volunteered to help.
- One challenge I experienced in college: I have ADHD with a twist of dyslexia (mostly with numbers), so it was difficult to finish exams on time, do math without losing my place and getting confused, or reading.
- Also, I am a musician and I had trouble as a student because I was focused on trying to be a rock star instead of school.
- I am a Greyhound Connection Mentor because I'm a graduate professor teaching graduate courses. I miss working with undergraduates.
