STARTING COLLEGE AT NORTHERN ARIZONA UNIVERSITY
Today, Mauricio is a freshman at Northern Arizona University (NAU) studying environmental engineering. When he isn’t in class, he plays on the intramural soccer team with his friends. He’s adjusting well to his college workload and living away from his family, but misses his mom’s delicious, home-cooked meals! Mauricio enjoys his time at NAU, meeting new people, being in a new environment, and sees college as an opportunity to explore what he wants to do and who he wants to be. Although early in his college career, Mauricio’s passion for helping others is so developed and deeply rooted in his history, we are confident Mauricio will be a world-changer—starting in Tarma, Peru.
