Filiberto Morales is currently a sophomore at the University of Colorado Denver and is majoring in Psychology. Filiberto is a first-generation college student and is fluent in Spanish. He hopes to one day become a physician and practice medicine in a community where he can utilize his Spanish and give back to the Hispanic community that has taught him so much. He currently volunteers in the Emergency Department at Exempla Lutheran Medical Center through the Medvantage program. In his free time, Filiberto enjoys playing soccer, a sport he has played since the age of six. He is very glad to be a part of UPP and to learn more about the research aspects of medicine. His parents came to the United States to give their children opportunities that were not available in Mexico. Through their hard work, Filiberto has gained a great appreciation for what it means to go to college. He strives to one day be an example for the Hispanic community and show others that anything is possible if you put the work in.
