My name is Nadia Alvarez. I’m currently a freshman at UNC Charlotte. So far my journey as a college student has been amazing, I truly like it here and I’m excited to see what these next few years have for me. Currently I’m undeclared but I have become very interested in Public Health.
I am from Asheboro, NC (where the zoo is located if you didn’t know). This town is rather small, but as I’ve gotten older I have grown to love it so much. Coming to Charlotte has been a difference from home because Asheboro is nothing compared to Charlotte.
If I had to describe myself, I would say that I am independent and motivated. I’ve grown up with parents who both moved from Mexico (when they were 15 years or older) to have a better life and they’ve achieved so much even through everything they’ve been through and that it has really motivated me to become someone who my parents can be proud of.
