Angelina Aguilar, who is from Lordsburg and due to life events affecting her family wishes to pursue a career in medicine. Immediate family members, including her father have battled cancer and through these experiences she has chosen to become a Radiologic Technician because of the important role it plays in identifying hidden diseases that can't be diagnosed through other medical methods. Angelina will be attending the University of New Mexico in the Fall and looks forward to giving back to others all that was given to her family by providing the best medical services possible through her chosen profession.
