About Abril

UNC felt like home literally 15 minutes into my tour, and that is why I decided to go to UNC. Being a first generation students, the idea of attending college seemed impossible, however I was constantly reassured that I would be guided and never alone! Similar to how I was helped through high school and my first year, I knew I wanted to do the same. That is why I want to become a teacher. I am part of the CUMBRES Teacher Prep Program, as well as became a Student Ambassador and an Orientation Leader on campus. I also joined the fan club for athletics called BEAR DEN to promote school spirit! Striving to create and be part of the community here at UNCO  that was introduced to me on my first day! 

3 Fun Facts:

1. I have met Shawn Mendes

2. I speak both English and Spanish

3.  I love the show Jane the Virgin, and have met Rafael aka Justin Baldoni!

Favorite Place on Campus:

President's Row. 

Advice to Prospective Students:

Always ask questions, and never stop learning! In the classroom, with your friends and family, or for yourself. Continue to grow and ask questions. Learning should never stop!
