As you read in the title, my name is Juan. I was born in Tepic, Nayarit Mexico. At the early age of 2 years old I went on a year long adventure along with my family. This adventure was going to “el norte”. “El Norte” is what many people in Mexico refer to the United States as. My mother brought me and my siblings in search of the cliche better life. So far, it has definitely been a better life for me and my family. So this is pretty much where my life begins. I am now an incoming senior at Anahuacalmecac High School. My greatest passion is playing soccer. I’ve played soccer since I was very young and I am a huge fan. And when I say huge, i mean really huge fan. If it weren’t for soccer and my family, who knows where I’d be at this moment. I don’t really know what I want to study after High School but one thing is for sure, I am going to college. This is one reason why I decided to come to the Pipeline Program.
So far, my first day has been really chill. I’ve met new people and hope to make new friendships. And I really hope to hope on to the soccer pitch here at Pitzer College.

Hi Juan! Glad you’re here in the Program too. Did you bring a soccer ball? Maybe we can organize a game one day. There is a big field right by the dorm too
A better life may seem cliche, but it’s such a real thing for families, it reminds me a lot of my family’s story. I think that part of that dream is going to college, and I look forward to seeing what amazing things you do on the path to a better life Juan! Happy you’re here!
