Mario Sanchez

Mario Sanchez is currently a senior at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) completing a bachelor's degree in History.

His academic interests include, but are not limited to, the Mexican War of Independence and how this revolt affected the American continent and the different regions under Spanish rule; the effects that American policies have had in the borderland region; and how global conflicts have affected Mexico.

Besides pursuing a college degree, Mario also works on his second passion—teaching—as a part-time educator in one of the school districts in El Paso, where he hopes to positively inspire the historians of the future.
