Jose Molina '17 Political Science, Psychology

Volunteering and community involvement transformed Jose Molina’s life in high school and college. Now he’s using all of his social and social science skills as a Peace Corps volunteer in Costa Rica.

UMass Lowell helped show me what I could bring to the Peace Corps in Costa Rica, why I should apply, and how I could make a difference in a youth’s life.
