How did LALS impact your educational experience at DePaul? Why did you become a major?:
I became a major because learning about my culture was important to me. I not only learned about what it means to be Latinx, but also how we are powerful people with a voice. I learned about a lot of important Latinx leaders who have inspired me to become a leader within the government in the near future.
What was your path to success and how do you utilize your LALS Major when job searching?:
I made sure to make it a point that being an LALS major was an important time in my life because I learned a lot about who I was and am as a person. But most importantly, I learned how I can achieve my goals by not being afraid to step out of the box. I utilized my major in a way that made me marketable to employers, should they ask why I chose that major and to show them why it's important to learn about your culture.
