      Short Bio: I grew up in Mazatlan, Mexico and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada at the age of ten. I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I completed four years in the Academy of Hospitality & Tourism in Valley high school. While in my four years of high school I was a member of AP Society, National Honor Society, DECA, Society of Latinos, Key Club, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), and Student Council. My senior year I was Student Council class secretary, Vice President of National Honor Society, Vice President of Marketing for DECA and FBLA, and an active member in all the other clubs. I am a freshman in Northern Arizona University and I am majoring in International Hospitality Management. I am already involved in several clubs in NAU such as: Collegiate DECA, HSMAI, and Club Managers Association America (CMAA). I am the CMAA chapter secretary this year, and would like to pursue officer position in HSMAI as well. During my stay in NAU I would love to pursue internship positions in hotels or club management. I am very interested in becoming either a front-desk manager or guest service manager for a hotel and work my way up to General Manager one day.
