“My advice to potential STEM students is to remain hopeful, confident, and keep working at it. I discovered L@s GANAS through an email from the UIC Honors College. I chose STEM because I enjoy learning about life and the natural world. I have a lot of career paths to explore. My greatest inspiration is my family. They accomplished great things even though they all had their individual struggles.”

“My advice to potential STEM students is not have an inferiority complex. You can excel. I learned about L@s GANAS from an advisor of the peer leader program at the Science Learning Center. STEM is important to me because Latinos are underrepresented in this field. I want to show people how smart Latinos are. My greatest inspiration is my dad because he tells me not to doubt myself.”
