Why did you decide to work for TRIO?

I am a product of TRIO. I was in Talent Search in High School. My Talent Search Advisor from High School told me about a new Talent Search program opening up in Hurst-Euless-Bedford and told me that I should apply. I applied for the position and became a Talent Search Advisor for several years in Hurst-Euless-Bedford. Later, I decided to apply for the Student Support Services position that was available on the UNT campus and the rest is history.

What is your favorite place on campus? Why?

Bruce Hall, because I thoroughly enjoy eating and love the salad bar and all of the other great foods offered there!

Personal Fun Fact:

I am Brazilian born, but American raised!
