"I was born in a beautiful small town in Mexico and have always felt more confident and comfortable in a close-knit community, such as the one I found at University of Detroit Mercy. The individual attention I received from professors and staff, the friendships I've made with people from diverse cultures, the values I've learned to guide me in my professional and personal life, with the great city of Detroit as my background, have all been essential and led me to where I am today. Landing the job I’ve always wanted at the company of my dreams wasn’t a simple task, but with the support of my family, friends, peers and the University, I’ve accomplished every goal I’ve set."
