Teresita is a first generation college student, who graduated from the University of Houston with a BBA in Marketing and Supply Chain Management. As a college student, Teresita was a member of The Challenger Program, where she met other First Gen students where she learned that she enjoyed helping students. Teresita joined the Project GRAD Team in 2016, and then transitioned into her GRAD Advisor role in 2017. She hopes that her support makes the college and career process less challenging and more feasible to navigate for students and families. Teresita loves her family time and enjoys spending time with them – whether it’s watching movies, playing volleyball, or playing games together. She also loves and enjoys walking her dog Pickles.
