Hi, I’m Aimee Barrera. I’m a student living in San Antonio, Texas. I have many interests including hiking, outdoors, and volunteering.

A main interest of mine is health sciences. I have grown up being involved in my community and other communities who are in a direr state and need support in order to create a brighter future. I have volunteered with children, dogs, cats and participated in mission trips. However, all of these experiences led me to discover something about myself that I had never known prior to these experiences, that I want to dedicate my future towards saving the lives of those who need saving. Especially when I volunteer with my local animal shelter, SAPA (San Antonio Pets Alive!), my heart fills with joy and excitement not by simply knowing that not only am I a part of something that has an important mission, but because what I do will save a life.

In addition, I enjoy being challenged. Enrolling in easy courses, settling for the simplest routes, and settling for results that are good at the moment is not who I am. I strive to take courses that challenge the way I view the world or certain topics, I desire to pursue a career in which I am satisfied with how my work will influence the world, and I always expect not only simply hard work, but constant improvement.

I am not just excited for my future; I am excited to make a difference in this world.
