Hola Hola!
September 13, 2019

Hola, everybody! It’s so nice to be interning again with Ogallala Commons and Amarillo Area Foundation for the second year. I’m excited to be writing these blogs and sharing some of the experiences and knowledge I’ve obtained throughout this summer. However, I’d like to kick off my blogs with an introduction about myself.

My name is Yesenia Ruby Soria. I’m a 22-year-old college student who was born and raised in Pampa, Texas. I’m a very proud Panhandle girl but have had the chance to live just outside of the area. I just graduated from Abilene Christian University with my Bachelor’s Degree in May of 2019. I majored in Business Management with concentrations in Business Leadership and Pre-Law as well as minors in English and Spanish. I was very blessed to receive the Valedictorian Award for my class and wrap up an undergraduate thesis in April of this year.

This summer, along with working on my apprenticeship with Amarillo Area Foundation, I worked as an administrative assistant for a couple who owns a restaurant in Pampa, Texas. I also currently help run social media marketing for several businesses in my hometown.

Just three weeks ago, I started law school at Texas Tech University School of Law. It’s been an exciting and challenging transition, but I’m excited to see what opportunities this new adventure opens up for me. I hope to complete a dual degree while in law school, so, if everything works out, I will begin classes for my Master’s of Business Administration in the summer of 2020.

I have always enjoyed learning and attending school, but here’s a few more facts about the non-school side of me:

  • I’m left-handed
  • I’m obsessed with Ford Mustangs, and I have a soft spot for the automobile industry
  • I love thrifting, shopping, and fashion
  • I really enjoy adventures in new places, near and far
  • I am very close to my parents and younger brother (who also attends Texas Tech!)

I appreciate the opportunity to share a little bit about myself. Here’s to a new series of blogs on new learning at a new internship.
