Alumni Story: Desiree Bernal

Desiree“Obtaining an associate’s degree at NVC was one of the greatest choices I’ve made in my educational journey.”

Desiree recently completed an Associate of Science degree from NVC. She currently attends, and is employed at, the University of Texas San Antonio, working towards a bachelor’s degree in Community Health. Her next steps in education include pursuing an internship at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio this summer, as well as graduating from UTSA later this year.

Desiree says a degree from NVC has prepared and motivated her to continue her education. “It has taught me to set goals and gave me the confidence to reach them,” she says.

Her advice to current students is to be persistent and believe that hard work will always pay off. “Always live in the moment and learn from it,” she says, “because you will never get a chance to experience that exact moment again.”

Favorite Vista Value:  Joy – “I always tell myself, enjoy what you do because it will show through your work, and attitude.”
