"I am approaching my final year in my undergraduate experience. Next year I will graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Biology and a double minor in Chemistry and Education. I am so grateful for PAACO. Your help and support has helped me greatly throughout my time at Colorado State University-Pueblo. Thanks to your support I have been able to focus on my studies, keep up my GPA, and get the most out of my college experience. Organizations like PAACO make a difference in so many students' lives and help them achieve their goals. After graduating I hope to attend graduate school. Currently, I am looking into various graduate programs in Biology and Biology Education. I hope to eventually work towards a Doctorate in Biology and teach at the college level. Thank you PAACO for helping me through the past four years and aiding me in the pursuit of my goals."
