I was born and raised in Brownsville, went to undergrad at Texas, to Harvard for law school, and I’m a lawyer now. Coming up to Austin was shocking. My freshman year, I walked around for a month and I didn’t know anybody on campus. And then by my senior year, I couldn’t walk 10 feet without seeing somebody I knew.
The chapter here is very active in supporting the Rio Grande Scholars Program. That’s my biggest connection with the Texas Exes, and I think they’ve done a fantastic job.
