Attending the U has been a great experience. I have met many people who have become a huge support system and a second family. For example, M.E.Ch.A. Because of this group, I have been able to grow and find the inner leader I have in myself. I have also been able to give to my community and learn about my Latinx/Chicanx/identity.
