Hi Everyone! My name is Helen Alarcón and I’m from México and I’m currently a freshman at the University of Washington Bothell. I went to high school in the Seattle area. As of right now, I’m involved with the Latino Student Union, College Access Now, the Dream Team, Beyond HB 1079 and I work for the Diversity Outreach Team and Recruitment where I help high school and college students with preparation for going to college. During my free time I like to go out with friends, snowboard, travel around the world and spend time with my family. I decided to come to the UWB because of the small class sizes and the strong community built by the students. In the near future I plan to major in Community psychology, minor in Spanish and then go to law school where I will then become a lawyer. I look forward to meeting you all and hope everyone is excited for the upcoming school year!
