Why I Wanted to Serve on the Alumni Council:

Choosing to go to Grinnell and receiving the support I did to do so really changed the course of my life. I recognize I would not be where I am today if it weren't for the decision and opportunity I had to attend Grinnell. Joining the Alumni Council and being involved with the College and community is how I want to help others have the same opportunities I did. I also recognize that having been an international student at Grinnell, I want to be able to represent the international group of alumni that I didn't see too often on the council and that are a growing percentage of students whose voices I'm excited to help be heard.

A Quote I Like:

“In uncertainty lies the seed of wanting.”

—Esther Perel

A Little Bit About Me:

As of January 2022, I've been working as Chief of Operations at a family-owned company providing consulting and other consular services to the Mexican immigrant community in the United States. Previously, I worked for almost 3 years at a New York-based media company that created an Emmy-award winning documentary and a card game based on that documentary experience.
