Being originally from San Luis Potosi, Mexico, I am proud to be the product of immigrants that with hard work and perseverance allowed me to receive a post-secondary education. I graduated from IU South Bend in 2016 with a Bachelors in History and a Political Science minor. In my years at IU South Bend I was involved in many clubs such as: The Latino Student Union, Men's Soccer Club, History Club, and more.

In addition, with guidance of the distinguished faculty, my research was published twice in the Undergraduate Research Journal for the 2016 and 2017 years.

After graduation I was a Secondary Education English teacher in the South Bend Community School Corporation, before being welcomed to be part of the Admissions team at IU South Bend.

As a graduate of IU South Bend's class of 2016, I have first-hand experience on being an IU South Bend student, and am aware of the endless resources, opportunities, and faculty IU South Bend has that will allow students to be successful in and outside of the classroom. I am fluent in Spanish and English, and I look forward to welcoming you and assisting you as you embrace this new journey as a Titan!
