Ivonne Soto

Master of Science in Criminology

My name is Ivonne Soto and I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Texas A&M University May 2015. After graduating I became a College Recruitment Advisor for the AdviseTX A&M chapter of the College Advising Corps, where we served low income high schools with high risk students in Texas. I was placed in the school district I graduated from, serving over 500 high school seniors, and spent the school year strengthening the college going culture by planning events, college field trips, workshops, and presentations for students and parents. With my background in psychology, sociology, criminology, and research I want to be able to find methods to effectively help criminalized youth break out of their systemic norm of violence and crime to strengthen their chances of pursuing a higher education.
