North Classroom, Suite 1030
Pronouns: She, Her, Hers
Alejandra is the proud daughter of immigrant parents from México who hold knowledge and wisdom beyond their years and have supported her in every way possible to attend and graduate from college. She has been studying and/or working at CU Denver since 2011. She recently completed the Master's in Counseling degree with a concentration in Higher Education & Student Affairs at the School of Education and Human Development in order to work with and advocate for first generation students and students of Color. Alejandra's passion for education advocacy began at the TRiO Educational Talent Search program by helping first generation students like herself navigate their journeys to and through higher education. Her advice is: “Sigue pa’lante / Keep moving forward! Sometimes there will be rivers to cross that have no bridges. So, what do you do? Ask questions, engage your community, and build a bridge together. In the words of Gloria Anzaldúa, “…se hace puentes al andar.”
When she is not at work, you can find Alejandra cooking, catching up on the latest season of OITNB, dancing to 90s hip hop and R&B, and attempting to hike.
