Sandra Vela


I was born in Brownsville, Texas and stayed there for 11 years until I moved to San Antonio in 2012. That was when I truly blossomed into who I am right now. The individuals around me have helped me unlock secret characteristics in me. My family ,especially my mom has helped me find that I persevere through the hardest of times. My sister, Ashley ( my best friend who is like family to me), has helped cultivate my confidence and discover what I am meant to do in the world.

My passion, basically as cliche as it sounds, is to help people and make their lives easier to withstand. Through volunteering at Siclovia and shadowing a physical therapist, I discovered that physical therapy is my passion. It fuels my motivation to make a difference in the world.

Through my experiences in the world around me, I have learned that education and love are key components in helping other people. I must do everything in my power to achieve my goal so that I can aid others in their quest of reaching their most desired goal.
