Intern Angela Valdez

USS Internship Program Coordinator


How can I help? 
I provide students with on campus and off campus resources that involve legal and academic support, financial aid, emotional and mental aid. I am actively involved in the planning and coordination of events, programs, and academic sessions that are tailored to help undocumented students.  

About Me: 
I am an undergraduate student pursuing a B.S. Biology major and a B.A. in Spanish. 

  • In my free time, I like to read, go on long walks or hikes, and I love spending a cloudy day watching movies and eating snacks. 
  • I am a plant mom and I absolutely love animals. 

Where are you and/or your family from? 
My family and I are from Toluca, Mexico. 

What words of wisdom do you have for undocumented students? 

  • You are not alone! You have a whole community who supports you and wishes for you to succeed. There is always someone around you willing to help. 
  • Do not give up on your goals and dreams, it does not matter how long your journey takes, all that matters is that you get there. 
  • Perseverance is the key to achieving your goals. 

What is one thing off your bucket list? 
I am so proud and happy to have taken bungee jumping off of my bucket list, definitely one of the most thrilling experiences I have ever had.
