All of my life I have worked to play softball at the collegiate level. My freshman year of college, that dream happened. Unfortunately, as the year went on, I had suffered a torn meniscus and a torn ligament in my right shoulder. Both of which did not allow me to perform in the way I wanted to. In addition to that, I wanted to seek a career in working with individuals with disabilities. Not available at my previous school. Therefore, I transferred to the University of Arizona to invest in a career that suits me better.
Upon graduation, I will be attending graduate school at the University of Arizona to pursue my masters in mild-moderate disabilities to receive my certification to teach special education in Arizona.
Having a college degree signifies growth for my family, as I am a first-generation college graduate. It will also allow me to reach my dream job of becoming a special education teacher in order to help and educate students. I hope to continue to further my education after my bachelor’s degree.
