Manny Alonzo - Outreach Coordiantor

Hello, my name is Manuel Alonzo Barrios, but I like to go by Manny. I was raised in Oaxaca, Mexico. At the age of 11, I moved to Gilroy, California, along with my mother. Today, I’m pursuing a major in Biological Sciences here at De Anza College. My main educational goal is to become a General Dentist one day. I’m really excited to be part of the HEFAS team as the Office Coordinator; I’m ready to dedicate my time and the experience that I’ve gained as an AB 540 student to help others like me. I know being an AB 540 student brings up many challenges when it comes to pursuing a higher education. But trust me, out of all the things I’ve learned, there’s always a way around them - all you need is ganas!
