Angelica Mascarenas moved to Colorado from Mexico, where she worked an ESL teacher in Leon, Guanajuato. Most of her family has college degrees, and her eight siblings work as lawyers, teachers and architects.
When she came to the U.S. with her husband in 2002, she learned she would have to start over with a new degree. She earned an associate degree at Colorado Mountain College in 2006, then decided to continue on for her bachelor’s when the opportunity arose.
“I chose CMC to do so because I feel comfortable with the college,” says Angelica. “The staff and faculty support me here.”
“I have learned from every teacher, and every class. The faculty here prepare their classes in interesting ways. This program (the business administration program) has been very inspiring, and a wonderful experience for me. It will open up many new opportunities.”
