Luis Alan ​Rodriguez


Classification: Senior

Major(s): English

My name is Luis Rodriguez, and I am a Senior at University of Houston- Downtown. My goal is to graduate May 2021. I am the Student Defender for UHD’s Student Government Association. I am currently in marketing and advertising in my profession, and I am majoring in English with a minor in Spanish and Legal Studies. My ultimate goals consist of graduating from UHD, graduating from law school, practice law, eventually open up my law firm, and then get into the political sector to help my community. With hard work and God’s grace, I will obtain and accomplish my goals.

My biggest achievement would be aiding my mother in raising my 5 younger siblings. Thanks to hard work and dedicating my time to them, one has graduated from Sam Houston State University, another is at Texas A&M University, one graduated high school and is working on opening her business, and the other two are finishing up their high school diploma. Everybody’s path is different, but the main idea is to leave this world a little bit better than it was.

Classification: Junior

Major(s): Criminal Justice

Hello everyone, my name is Alejandro (Alex) Medina, a junior and criminal justice major at UHD (Go Gators!). I am one of the four associate justices in SGA and it is an honor to be able to serve all the students at UHD. My interest in law and wanting to become a judge was the reason for applying to the SGA associate justice position and I assure I will do the job to the best of my abilities because the students at UHD deserve it. Other interests I have are mountain biking, soccer, hockey, collecting snow globes (my favorite hobby at the moment), and spending quality time with my family. I am looking forward to working with SGA as I know they have the best interest for the students at UHD, and they will continue to work diligently to ensure the campuses and experiences at UHD are top notch!​
