Now that I look back and see how much of my life has been shaped by what I study and by the relationships I have established within my department, it is evident that declaring my major in Anthropology was quite a stepping stone. The professors I have had have inspired and encouraged me like no other to unsettle and question what surrounds me.
Besides my passion for Anthropology, I am also interested in Latin American affairs, which is why I have chosen to pursue a certificate in Latin American Studies.
I have danced since my freshman year in Ballet Folklórico de Princeton, which is something I always wanted to try since it is very huge in the South Texas community where I am from. I am most involved in this group in comparison to other things I do since I teach dances to incoming members and serve as a board member for the group. I am also a member of Chicano Caucus, participate in Princeton’s Yoga Club, and try to join in a variety of campus activities whenever I can make time.
I have a wide range of interests and am considering Law School and/or graduate school in Anthropology after I have completed my years here.
