Northern Arizona University
Cristina was born in Salinas, California to migrant agricultural parents, and the family split time Salinas, CA and San Luis, AZ, where they eventually settled. She was a first generation student and earned good grades in school but her parents were not willing to have her leave the area for University. Even though she dreamed of living on a big campus, her dedication to her family and her work came first. She attended AWC and subsequently transferred to NAU-Yuma to complete a Bachelor degree in Social Work and a Masters in Education in School Counseling. It took her 8 years to finish, and now she leads the AWC Career and Advising team.
Cristina’s family wasn’t able to send her to a large university in a distant city. Finding a local solution to her dreams of a Bachelor’s degree was critical to her success and completion.

Talia completed her AWC – ASU @ Yuma degree in four years as a full-time student right out of high school. She nearly always had an internship or a job during that time, first as an AWC Ambassador leading student tours, and later as an Outreach & Recruitment specialist. Her dream was to serve in the same high school where she had studied, and today she is doing just that – as a high school English teacher.
Talia came to AWC with a huge desire to serve the college community. After four years of focused study, she’s moving on to serve the high school students who will come to AWC.
