Sandra Aguirre is the most recent staff member to join the Project ARRIBA team. With her years of customer service experience, and offering volunteer hours at Project ARRIBA, she gladly obtained the position as a Program Specialist.

Sandra obtained a High School Equivalency Degree in 2000. She then attended Computer Career Center to later graduate as a Medical Assistant and Phlebotomy Tech. She worked as a Financial Rep at GC Services providing 6 years of Customer Service .

Sandra was born in Chicago, Ill. , and moved to El Paso were she has lived for more than 20 years. She is the second oldest child of three siblings. She is married to Raul and proud parents of three children Jasmin (17), Jacquelin (12), and Raul (5). She believes “A negative mind will never give you a positive life.”

My name is Sandra Aguirre, I work at Project ARRIBA and I’m a Case Manager Assistant. The one thing that all participants and graduates have in common is to obtain a degree in the medical field. The best part of my job is that we help and motivate low-income individuals to get through college. I do think that we as a team at Project ARRIBA do impact individuals because a lot of the applicants that come into Project ARRIBA are low income that are living off minimum wage, once they graduate and start working, they start living a better life for themselves and their families. We do work long hours, but what motivates me is that at the end of the day we know that we have put a smile on the participants’ faces, which means that we have gone above and beyond to help them out.
