As a Spanish Lecturer at Gonzaga University, I believe in the mission statement for Social Justice. What I like about Gonzaga is that it gives me the opportunity to serve as a positive example for the Latino community. As a community member, I volunteer with organizations to promote participation in opportunities to improve their lives. The experience at Gonzaga gives me a great understanding of the capabilities of Gonzaga students, their balancing act of school work, and participating in extracurricular activities. In addition, I like running, riding my bike with my family, and trekking around Spokane.
