On February 13th we had our College Chica event, and for me it was my first time experiencing something like that. A little over all, we had a college panel on why college is important and different experiences from the ladies, I was actually able to talk about some of my experiences. What I really liked is that these young Latinas were able to get a tour from our campus here in El Paso, we went to the University of Texas at El Paso, we showed them around, they got a chance to see how big it…Continue
