Hello, my name is Angela Monita and I am a first-gen, transfer student majoring in communication. I am a senior and was just accepted into graduate school to pursue a Master of Science in Business. I am involved in the National Society of Leadership & Success, UTSA Club Golfers, Public Relations Society of America, and the UTSA Campus Rec Aquatics Team. My career goals include attaining employment with Valero, Exxon, or USAA and one day becoming a business owner.
Being a peer mentor allows me to share my knowledge, wisdom, and own life experiences with other students that need guidance or just a friend to talk to. The most valuable aspect of mentoring is that the student mentees are just as much of a mentor to me as I am to them. Both of us work together to obtain educational success, friendship, or even just an academic source to refer to when we need a little extra help. I hope as a mentor I can improve the quality of the transitional experience to UTSA for my mentees and make it a more enjoyable opportunity for anyone wanting to give this great university a shot.
