I am a proud UT Arlington alumnus (’04 and ’06) and a product of the TRiO Programs. During high school I participated in the TRiO UB and UBMS programs; I chose to attend UT Arlington after attending the UTA UBMS summer program. My favorite thing about UTA is Oozeball; it's a great tradition (mud volleyball)! I would like to share a quote that inspires me: “To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.” - unknown

As a UTA alumnus, I am very happy to be back at UTA. I love the diversity of the University, and all the potential opportunities to meet people and have new experiences. I think TRiO SSS is an awesome program because we are focused on assisting our students in reaching their educational goals, and raising awareness of numerous resources that can help them along the way.

I was excited to join TRiO SSS because I am able to share my passion for education and helping students. My education includes a BA and MA in music studies, and I am currently working on a Bachelor’s in Psychology at UTA. I also am a part-time personal trainer and part-time voice teacher.

I feel very fortunate to be a part of the caring and professional SSS team. The students are our first priority. We work very closely with the students in our program and provide them with the individual support and assistance they may need as they tackle the challenges often met by college students.
