A Conversation with Zaira

Tell us a little about yourself.

I come from a small town in Queretaro, Mexico, where I spent my childhood. Family means everything to me. I come from a small family; there are just four of us: my mom, dad, little sister and me. I moved to the United States with my family when I was 16. Being in a new country and adapting to a new culture and language made my college journey challenging but rewarding. My family, professors and mentors were always an amazing support. I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in 2021, and I plan to continue my education and pursue my master's degree.

What would you tell a student who is thinking about attending A&M-Commerce?
