Why I chose the University of Idaho

Coming to the University of Idaho was one of the best things that could have happened to me. I came in under the College Assistant Migrant Program with a group of 34 other students who like me came from a Hispanic and Latino background as well as an agricultural background. It was the perfect support group full of students who were going through the same issues and who were all mostly first generation students. These 34 students soon became part of my family.

What I like most about UI

After finishing the first semester strong, I found a home in an organization called Movimiento Activista Social. It was a group highly motivated and committed to social justice and social change. I am grateful for the opportunity to create change alongside my closest friends. I decided to run for ASUI Senate and got elected! Senate has given me the opportunity to connect with staff, faculty and administration as well as with various student organizations and living groups around campus.

Somebody once asked me to describe the University of Idaho in three words and I knew right away what the three words were: COMMUNITY, OPPORTUNITY, and LEADERSHIP. That is exactly what the University of Idaho is to me, a community of students and local people collaborating to create change.

I couldn’t be more proud to say that I am a first generation Vandal but not the last, and that I will leave a legacy through my service and through my work. The experiences, the laughs, the memories, the events, the news, the facility, the students, the handshakes, the speeches, the lectures, the dances, the mountains, the roads, and the people will always stay in my heart.
