Alyn Aguilar’s interest in service started during her junior year of high school.
As a volunteer with the National Honor Society, she helped those less fortunate in the Omaha area by volunteering with the Heartland Hope Mission and Hyvee Stuff a Truck food drive. In her application, Aguilar explained that giving back to others and taking advantage of leadership opportunities in high school and in college have helped shape the person she is today.
Currently, she volunteers for UNO’s Signature Service Days, plans and promotes LatinX culture events on campus and in the community, serves as the Community Service Chair for the Lambda Theta Nu Sorority at UNO, and spends time writing to senior citizens to give them comfort during the pandemic.
Aguilar’s dream is to become a surgeon so she can continue down a path towards helping others.
