University Attending: USF
“My name is Alejandro Montes and I am born and raised in San Diego, CA. I am a Junior at the University of San Francisco majoring in Finance hoping to one day break into the financial industry. Establishing a career in Finance has always been one of my lifelong goals as well as pursuing my studies.
One of the main reasons why I wanted to work at First Graduate is because I truly believe in their mission to help students become the first in their families to graduate from college. Being a first generation college student myself allows me to connect with the students we support on a deeper level because I see myself in them and understand some of the struggles they may face outside of the classroom. It is very important to intern or offer support at First Graduate because it is an organization with awesome people dedicated to tackling a crucial issue in our community.”
