Daniel's parents did not have the chance to go to college due to working multiple jobs to support their two sons, but they kept encouraging their sons to exceed their grasp when it came to education. Daniel absolutely loves learning anything and everything!

Meet Adelina

Position: College and Career Specialist

Degree: Bachelor of Business Administration, NMSU | Master of Arts in Education, NMSU

Personal Biography:  As an advocate for a postsecondary education, my education has laid the foundation to develop both personally and professionally. It has been the investment for creating employment opportunities. My educational success is the result of caring individuals who guided me to resources to help identify career options and financial resources. With personal sacrifice and hard work, I am the first in my family to complete both an undergraduate and graduate degree.

With over eight years of experience in higher education, I understand the barriers minorities face in pursuing a postsecondary education. As a College and Career Specialist, my goal is to empower and guide all Alaskans to navigate through the channels of pursuing and advancing their educational goals, whether it is a degree, certificate, vocational or apprenticeship program.
