Yolanda Barajas - Social Work and Psychology - Fall 2021 Senior Spotlight

Dec 03, 2021

Yolanda Vazquez Barajas 
Majors: Social Work and Psychology 

Campus Activities and Achievements: Saints Women’s Soccer Team, Event Services Work Study that allowed me to be a part of San Antonio’s Fiesta Flambeau Parade, OLLU’s 5K Confetti Run, and a variety of events on campus. 

Impact of OLLU: OLLU has impacted my life in many ways. It introduced to me life-long friends, gave me memories that are unforgettable, professors that have been the best mentors, and the knowledge to succeed in the future. 

An important life lesson: The biggest lesson I learned was that life does not always go as planned. The goal is to never give up and have zero regrets. 

Plans for the future: Firstly, I plan on pursuing my master’s and with my degree I hope to become a clinical social worker with the focus on supporting children, adolescents, and moms. I hope to provide that support to those in need and make a positive impact in people’s lives in any manner. I have been accepted into graduate school at UT and have a job lined up.
