Transfer Student Spotlight: Valentin Madrigal

Valentin Madrigal is an Arizona State University transfer student from Central Arizona College. Inspired to pursue higher education to support his family, in addition to his fascination with space travel, he chose ASU for their renownedAerospace Engineering program, anticipating to graduate in spring 2024.

As a first-generation college student, Valentin chose to begin at a community college, as he struggled through high school and had very little knowledge of the American educational system. Coming from an underdeveloped part of Mexico that lacked a public education system, his parents had difficulties guiding him on his educational journey. He admits to having been an unmotivated student in high school because of impoverishment and family circumstances. Convinced that he would never be able to go to college with his low GPA and ACT score, Valentin joined the U.S. Army instead. With hard work and dedication, Valentin is now a Phi Theta Kappa honor student who was able to fund his education using the GI Bill.
