My name is Jesse Mata and I am currently a Graduate student enrolled in West Texas A&M University [WTAMU] with a major in Chemistry. I have been attending WTAMU since 2012 and am currently working on finishing my final year for my Master's program. I have achieved a 3.84 gpa for my undergrad where I graduated in the spring of 2015. Since then I have been working on my graduate degree to pursue my dream of becoming an Analytical Chemist. I plan to finish my degree in either the spring or summer of 2017. My entire college career I have paid for my tuition out of pocket, but with the increasing tuition costs and difficulties of classes, the amount of time I can work has decreased to coincide with the need for studying and research. I am just hoping to achieve enough support to finish my degree without having to resort to student loans.
