“I hope to establish myself here,” she said. “I’ve always been the kind of person to not stop and keep working.”

Fuentes plans to earn her bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Houston-Victoria.

In high school, Claudia serves as parliamentarian of the National Honor Society and is an active member of the student council. She also has been a student athlete in volleyball and softball. While she doesn’t plan to play softball at UHV, she does plan to be an avid fan, she said.

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region, offers courses leading to more than 65 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and concentrations in the schools of Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, Education & Human Development, and Nursing. UHV provides face-to-face classes at its Victoria campus as well as teaching sites in Fort Bend and Harris counties, and online classes that students can take from anywhere.
