Melina Escobedo-Orozco

I am 22 years old, and currently a junior at St. Mary’s University. Although I was born in Pomona, California, I reside here in San Antonio, TX and have lived here since I was 7. I earned my associate’s degree in June 2022 at Northwest Vista College, where I majored in criminal justice. After earning my associate’s degree, I transferred to St. Mary’s and changed my major to forensic science criminology with a minor in biology. I aspire to earn my bachelor’s degree by Fall 2024. After I earn my bachelor’s degree, I’m deciding if I want to earn a master’s degree in a different field. I am passionate about learning, although, I am eager to start my career in the field of forensic science. My dream career is a forensic technician, or a medical examiner. With the support of my family, I know that I can achieve my dream career as soon as I graduate from St. Mary’s University.
