Hi y’all! My name is Mercedes and I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas where I graduated as a first-generation college student in communications and a minor in English. I moved to Tucson in January 2018 and immediately fell in love with the culture and beauty of Tucson! I love painting, listening to music, playing video games, traveling, and going to Target. I recently completed my Master’s of Education in higher education to aid in my pursuit of serving students here at the University of Arizona. The Transfer Student Center is a warm, welcoming community for any student who needs it, so come on over!
