Hi Everyone, Hola a todos!
My name is Rossanna Espinoza and I’m one of the new ambassadors for the 2019-2020 school year. I was born and raised in Honduras, San Pedro Sula. I came to the United States when I was 16 years old with my mom and two siblings. My dad ended up coming two years later. Yeah, I know, it was quite a change! It was pretty challenging the first 2 years, but I’m so happy to be here and have different opportunities to grow and improve my education.
I’ve been a full time student here at Clark for the past year. Currently, I’m pursuing an AA in Music; still not sure what school I will be transferring too, but I am pursuing my options. One of my biggest motivations is Jesus, he has helped me stay stable and remember why I’m here at Clark College. My goal with this program is to develop my abilities on how to write music; specifically worship songs. I also lead a worship team at my church and am still learning as I go because it is more than just singing. I truly love it. I also praise Jesus and that is just 10 times better.
I love helping people and finding the right resources they need in order for them to be successful in school. I know how it is to be sitting down in a classroom and not understanding what the professor is talking about. Over time, I got better at understanding the information that was taught to me. The reason for this is because my professors helped me so much and supported me during the process. If anyone is looking for a bilingual tutor, I am more than welcome to help! 🙂
Besides God, my family has been such a big support and motivation since I started College. They understand how hard it can be; but they also know that I dedicate a lot of my time to study and get into the right path. My family motivates me to keep going even though it can be hard sometimes. I’m just blessed to have them.
Besides music and church, I also enjoy hanging out with my friends. Activities we do together consists of bowling, going to the movies and eating at different restaurants. I also enjoy doing Missionary Trips. This past summed I had the opportunity to do a trip in Argentina. I loved the culture and how welcoming they are. Trust me, they have the best meat and bread. I’m not going to lie, I got a little tired of it after a while because all they eat there is an assortment of meat, bread, and pizza. As well as different kinds of pastries, coffee and tea. Sounds pretty good, but I wouldn’t recommend it as your daily meals.
