Valeria is originally from Forth Worth, TX. She is majoring in Human Development and Family Sciences. She wanted to join UTeach Outreach to have an impact on the academic lives of kids. At UTeach Outreach she can't wait to be more involved in the program and work as a team since everyone is so open and kind. After graduation, she plans to attend nursing school. Her family inspires her the most because they have supported her since the beginning. Because of them, she credits them with being able to attend school and be able to graduate. She wants to ultimately give back to them the same way they have for her.
She has been to Venice, Barcelona, Paris, and Rome. She has also slept for 17 hours in a row.
