Bio

Hi there! My name is Matthew Velazquez and I am excited to introduce myself as an upcoming student at the University of Arizona,(UofA). As a hardworking and dedicated student who is eager to make my dreams a reality, my goal is to eventually become a fitness director. Being a first generation Mexican-American student of my family, I believe I possess the necessary qualities such as diligence, respectfulness, and team-oriented skills that will enable me to be an excellent advocate for any scholarship that I may apply for. I am confident that with my positive attitude and work ethic, I can excel in pursuing my dream job. I am ready to face any challenge that comes my way, and I am excited for what the future holds. If you have any questions or inquiries, please feel free to contact me at (520) 414-1586 or via email at matty100v@gmail.com. I would be more than happy to answer any questions that donors might have.
