Our staff is curious about the day-to-day in other offices, so we'd like for you to answer this very important question 😏 -

What kind of is music playing in your office?! If you're back in-person, do you have an open-concept layout where music is played for all, or do you listen to headphones at your desk?

What about genres? What does your team like to listen to, or what do you listen to while working solo?

What do I plan to do with my degree? Welllll... if I haven’t made it obvious enough, I hope to go to dental school to be a dentist! I majored in psychology because I knew that I wanted to work with people and I wanted to understand them! Also, dentists can be a big phobia that a lot of people tend to deal with, so I wanted to learn how to handle a situation like that if I ever had a patient with odontophobia in my chair.

When I went through my orthodontic treatment in middle school, I felt like a changed person once my braces were off. That feeling really resonated with me, and I realized that dentistry is a field that helps people while being extremely hands on- two things I knew I wanted in my future career.

Unfortunately, only 3% of dentists in the US are of Hispanic descent. On top of that, Hispanic communities struggle heavily with dental disparities. These facts don’t discourage me but only give me a reason to work hard to make a difference for my people. Hopefully one day we will see more Hispanic and Latino people in the dental field thanks to organizations like HPGM that help fund these dreams.

For minority and first-gen students, college can be a really difficult journey to embark. I remember getting hit hard with the imposter syndrome when I first started school as I was not sure if I was cut out enough for higher education. When I started conducting research with Dr. Kirchhoff my sophomore year, I realized that I was comfortable enough to ask her for advice when it came to picking out classes or managing my time in school. I never had someone older than me that I could turn to when it came to the college lifestyle and as I expressed these concerns more to her she quickly became not only my colleague but an awesome mentor! Organizations like HPGM have also helped in motivating me to work hard in school. Sometimes it can be hard to believe in myself, but seeing other Hispanic excellence being celebrated in my community is such a huge inspiration. If you would’ve told a younger version of myself that I would be working on oral diseases found in monkeys I would’ve never believed it, but that is where my journey has taken me. If you believe in yourself you can achieve anything you put your mind too and I can’t stress that enough.

Although she is not a first-generation student, Dr. K understand how difficult this transition may be for students that are. She advises students to go out and find a mentor that can help navigate them with whatever they need. There are people out there who are always going to believe in you even if you find it hard to believe in yourself. Don’t let self doubt or the imposter syndrome get to you- si se puede!! #womeninstem #latinasinstem #latinasinmedicine

Hi everyone! As you probably know already, my name is Jessie and I’m a 2020 HPGM scholar who attends Marquette University!

Just a little about my family and I... I’m originally from Chicago but I moved up to Milwaukee when I started my freshman year of college at MU. As the first one in my family to go to school, I was super nervous but college soon turned out to be one of the best adventures of my life so far (more on that later!). Sometimes it’s hard not being with my family, since we’re all pretty close, but I still manage to keep in touch with them all the time. Like I said, my family continues to be my biggest inspiration and motivation. My dad used to work in the trades but then decided that he wanted to start his own home inspection business, and the whole family has seen the business flourish since he’s started it! My mom also went back to work as a school secretary after many years of staying home and raising me and my siblings (and she did an awesome job at that). My parents have always instilled the importance of education in me and my siblings and for that I am soo grateful. If it wasn’t for my family, I definitely would not be where I am today. 🤍🇲🇽

In the future, I hope my siblings also attend Marquette as I would love to be together with them again. Either way, no matter where they end up, I know that they will do an awesome job making me and my parents proud 🙂🙂

Please share and donate!

Christina Lopez-Prado is the VP of Mount Mary University’s HPGM MMU Student Chapter and is an incredibly involved student in our organization.

Her commitment to professional development is made clearly evident by her consistent attendance at our programs and events, even in the past year as our organization was adjusting to virtual programming.

“Every year, the Mount Mary School of Arts and Design holds a showcase of student work called CREO. Due to the pandemic, this event did not take place in 2020. Now in 2021, [students] are able to showcase designs from both 2020 and 2021 through a virtual video production.”

Now that she has been able to raise her initial goal of $300, Christina would like to continue her fundraising in support of herself and her fellow fashion students to accomplish their goal of producing a successful showcase for her final year at Mount Mary College.

Let's help Christina earn the recognition she deserves as the top student fundraiser for this year's CREO celebration!

You can help ensure that Mount Mary University students are able to show the culmination of their four years of hard work at the 2021 CREO Virtual Experience. Find out more and make your donation here: igfn.us/vf/CREOFashion21.
