Joceline Altamirano

Houston, Texas
Joceline is from Houston Texas. She is currently a sophomore at the University of Texas at Austin majoring in Economics. As a first generation student her main goal is to set an example back home and become someone her little cousins can look up to.  
Being the first to attend college from a Hispanic household is a lot of pressure and also has been a big eye opener for her. As a member of our UTeach Outreach program she hopes to learn more and grow and be able to be a part of something that provides a wonderful opportunity for more first gen students to become aware of what is possible for them.
