Amanda Baquera

Hi, my name is Amanda Baquera. I am a senior Microbiology major from Socorro, Texas. I am a Student Assistant in the PEGASUS program and the Vice President of the student organization Generation One. I joined both these programs because they are geared in helping first generation college students in their success here at tech through community service, academic support and campus involvement.

Entering Texas Tech as a freshman and a first generation student I wanted to become involved with organizations that would motivate me to meet my academic goals and give back to the community. Being involved helped me meet the friends I have now and gain the leadership roles I currently hold.
