“I’m from a small school, so I love the one-on-one teaching that goes on at the university,” she said. “UHV also is very affordable.”

Herrera expressed her excitement about being part of the FIRST 200.

“We can make our traditions and create new organizations,” she said.

Herrera plans to earn her bachelor’s degree in forensic science as a first step to eventually earning her doctorate.
