UT Dallas Achievements & Activities

  • Comet Transfer Scholarship Recipient

Deciding on Sociology

I discovered my passion for sociological studies at Richland College. My Introduction to Sociology class opened my eyes up to the realization that life and interactions are more structured than people believe.

My EPPS Success

The key to my success is to constantly strive to better myself. I am very lucky to have the opportunity to attain higher education, and it definitely takes hard work and dedication. My mother, a Mexican immigrant, always tells me, “Nothing good comes without sacrifice.”

Plans for the Future

I plan to keep attending UT Dallas and receive my Master’s in Applied Sociology.
