The Northwest Vista College Ambassador Program, which started a couple of semesters ago, has really improved and enhanced the lives of the applicants and the ambassadors. I am very fortunate and privileged to be re-elected so I can serve Northwest Vista College.
It all started when I was called via the phone, asking me to come in for an interview. I asked myself when I applied for this program, maybe it’s not true. But on the day of the interview, I was told that Mr. Eddie Bishop, one of the best math instructors, had nominated me to serve the school. That was how my journey to leadership started, and ever since then, I have not looked back.
This program is a life-changing program, of which at the end, you see your life changing so positively towards people around you and the society at large. During the course of this program, I volunteered a lot for different school activities, had a few tours, such as showing high school students around our beautiful campus and going to several high schools giving speeches. Also at the end of each semester, there is a huge stipend to be given to each student and a wonderful plaque thanking the student for serving the school and their community.
I also got exposed to school authorities. Most of the time we dined together with the school president and visitors to the school, such as John Phillip Santos, the first ever Mexican-American Rhodes Scholar.
