Alumni Story: Francisco J. Herrera '13

My professors in the LALACS program always stressed the importance of asking better questions. They also encouraged me to be creative in how I set about answering them. Its been incredibly useful to keep in mind that sometimes the questions we ask, the things we worry about, the methods to our goals may be fundamentally disconnected to the reality we observe/experience. Its been useful in helping me make sense of the world around me as well as the work I that I do. Since graduating I have worked as an Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions and Liaison for Latina/o Students. It's been wonderful to be able to bring these skills not only into navigating post-undergraduate life but also to share my passion for the subject matter(s) with my colleagues.
