My name is Alicia Romero. I am 17 years old. I will be a 2019 graduate from Taos High School. I am a member of the Tiger Classics dance team and have been since my freshman year. This year, I am also one of the team captains.
I am enrolled in dual credit classes at the University of New Mexico-Taos. I enjoy spending time studying various types of medical practices. I also enjoy spending my Sunday mornings at Mass at Our Lady of Sorrows Capilla in Arroyo Hondo.
In 2015, I traveled to England, France and Italy. While there, I took the opportunity to study and learned a lot more about my religion. I have always had a strong passion for my religion and when in Rome, I got to not only visit Vatican City but, also walked through the beautiful Sistine Chapel. This is where I fell in love with my patron saint, Michael.
Along with my love of my religion, I also love spending time hunting, fishing, dancing, reading, skiing, camping, archery, cooking in the Taos High School culinary arts program and spending time with my family.
My plans after graduation are to stay in Taos for two years and start my pre-med schooling at UNM-Taos. Then, I plan to move to Albuquerque and continue my studies at the University of New Mexico’s main campus in pursuit of a medical degree with a minor in culinary arts. My goal is to become an anesthesiologist.
My parents are Andres and Soveida Romero of Arroyo Hondo. My siblings are Ashley Galliour and Andrea Romero. My maternal grandparents are Louella Garcia and the late Leroy Mondragón. My paternal grandparents are Anna Herrera and Andy Romero.
