Human Sciences Ambassadors

Leslie Amaya

Leslie is a Community, Family, and Addiction Sciences (CFAS) major from Frisco, Texas. Her minors are Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS) and Psychology. Leslie chose to come to Texas Tech because she wanted the experience of living in a college town. She loves the atmosphere and school spirit found in Lubbock, as well as the love for Red Raider Nation. Leslie has always wanted a job that would help people, and is glad one of her HDFS professors told her about CFAS and encouraged her to pursue it. Her favorite thing about her major is the newness of the field, as there is so much room to grow and explore different possibilities. Leslie loves learning from people who have gone through some of the things she would like to counsel others on; she said it gives her a better education by learning from people who have lived it. Leslie will graduate May of 2017.
