Congratulations to Roxette Rios ’23 for graduating this past Spring 2023 semester with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree!
Roxette has been an asset to our team – serving as a Student Leader for the ConeXiones program for the Spring 2023 term. During her time with ConeXiones, Roxette connected students with invaluable resources and engaged students by bringing interactive programming opportunities. She is passionate about assisting Hispanic transfer students in their journey toward academic attainment.
“Being a part of ConeXiones has been a pillar to me during my time at UCF by providing me a way to get closer to my Hispanic community in my home away from home. I have gained many sweet memories and valuable skills as a Peer Knights Mentor that I will carry on forever. ConeXiones impacts the Hispanic student population here in Central Florida, and I could not have been any prouder to be a part of this amazing program. It has truly changed my life for the better,” says Roxette.
We thank her for all she has done and wish her the best in her future endeavors!
