Esteffania Lezama Bio

Practicum Counselor

Personal Statement:
Due to the numerous obstacles students experience during their college years, I feel honored to have the opportunity to serve Texas A&M University’s student body as a practicum counselor. I view counseling as a safe space for students to learn more about themselves and grow, all while developing the skills they need to continue leading healthy, happy lives. Spanish is my native language and I have a deep passion and interest in working with Spanish-speaking clients. One of my goals is to become specialized as a bilingual counselor in order to reach out to a variety of Spanish-speaking populations across the world.

In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, reading, journaling, trying new food, traveling, spending time with friends and family, and attending music concerts.
