His goals are to pass down his love of ALPFA and the true meaning of ALPFAmila. 

Why I joined ALPFA: I joined ALPFA because I wanted to be a part of something bigger than an organization. I remember my first ALPFA meeting like it was yesterday. That feeling like I was with family right from the beginning. That’s when I knew this organization was for me. ALPFA has put me on the right track to be successful. From workshops, Office tours, campus visits, and Volunteering activities. Not to mention all the memories, friendships, and enjoyment this organization has done for me. I love this organization and would love for everyone to experience it too.

He started in Finance with an interest in investments. Later on, he learned more about the Accounting profession and took on double majoring in both fields. As of Spring 2020, he is the Vice-President for ALPFA at UTSA. His goals as Vice-President are to enhance the experience for the chapter and pass down the knowledge he has gained from the four years he’s been at UTSA.  Alexander plans to attend Graduate School at UTSA and will be interning as a Tax Intern at RSM, starting in Spring 2021. His personal goals are to travel around the world more, continue language studies in Spanish, and Japanese to a business proficiency level.

Why I joined ALPFA: “I joined ALPFA to establish and create new relationships. I noticed the camaraderie and family-like group that I was able to connect with easily. Everyone has unique backgrounds and a story to tell. The support system is similar to what I had when serving as a Cadet. Since my time in ALPFA, I have created many memories and friends throughout the rest of my college career. I have ALPFA to thank for providing the countless opportunities it has created for me. I couldn’t ask to be with a better organization!”

Why I joined ALPFA: “I joined ALPFA because I wanted to be around like-minded individuals with a passion for being part of something bigger. Not knowing anyone at UTSA took me a while to get out of my comfort zone, but the ALPFamilia has always made me feel welcomed.

Graduation Date: May 2021

Bio: Alexis Mojica is originally from Ganado, Texas, which is a small town of 2003 people. She is a small-town girl and moved to San Antonio for College. Her decision to choose UTSA was because of the diversity, the powerlifting team, and MACY Program. She was drawn to accounting in high school and continued that passion in college. Alexis became very involved on campus, joining various organizations, and became a peer mentor. She did not join ALPFA until her junior year, which is something she regretted not joining sooner. Alexis is now an intern at Valero, which she feels she owes to this organization because of the help she received every step of the way during the interview and decision process. Her graduation is next May, and she plans to continue her education to obtain her master’s degree and pursue becoming a CPA.

Why I joined ALPFA: I joined ALPFA because I was curious to see what accounting possibilities were available. I soon realized it was the best decision I have made in college because it has opened so many doors and allowed me to become more confident. I have obtained valuable connections and information that would not have been accessible in other groups because it is full of genuine individuals who care about each member’s success. I am happy to be part of an organization that is diverse and has a fantastic atmosphere.

As Director of Fundraising, she hopes to make it possible for other members to acquire these things through events provided by ALPFA.

Why I joined ALPFA: Transitioning from a Biochem major to an Accounting major, ALPFA had provided me with a way to get familiar with the College of Business and its different resources. After joining ALPFA, not only did I learn a lot, but I was also able to make friends and meet some really great people that have become my support system at UTSA. This organization has taught me many things that aren’t taught in the classroom while also creating great memories.

Anna Luera

Director of Community of Outreach

Hometown: San Antonio, TX
Major(s): Accounting
Classification: Senior
Graduation Date: Fall 2020

Bio: Anna Luera is originally from San Antonio.  She moved to New York since her dad was in the Army before being stationed back in San Antonio. However, her “Northern” accent is still with her, even after fifteen years. Anna has lived many lifestyles. As the oldest child of three, she has lived as an only child, as a homeless person, and as a higher middle-class person. Anna is considered wise by her peers, mentors, and supervisors. However, her wisdom mainly comes from my experiences, not just from her intellect. Thus, she has pulled herself towards Accounting, academics, investments, career fairs, and campus organizations to succeed financially. Anna’s goal is to help others navigate the financial world and build economic knowledge upon a foundation of understanding.

Why I joined ALPFA: I joined ALPFA because I wanted to try other Accounting organizations. After spending some time in the National Association for Black Accountants and attending some meetings with Beta Alpha Psi, I craved to create new connections. ALPFA has helped me develop and strengthen my connections, and I’m delighted I joined.

Director of Social

Hometown: San Antonio, TX
Major(s): Accounting
Classification: Senior

ALPFA has helped Jahaira with being able to grow professionally and hope to help others in the future. After graduating in the Spring, she will pursue her master’s degree in Accounting.

Why I join ALPFA: I joined ALPFA because I saw how we could encourage each other and push each other to overcome obstacles we may have. The members of ALPFA want to help you succeed in your career, and they offer all their help to anyone who needs it. This organization has given me opportunities to network and grow for my future. 

Raul Jamie

Director of Education

Hometown:Freeport, TX
Major(s): Masters of Accountancy (MACY), B.B.A. Accounting and Finance
Classification: Graduate
Graduation Date: Dec 2021

Bio: Raul Jaime was born and raised in Freeport, Texas, located right on the Gulf Coast. Raul transferred to UTSA in the Fall of 2017 from Brazosport College, where he completed his Associates of Arts. Raul began his educational career with a degree in Marketing but later changed to a double major in Accounting and Finance. In the Spring of 2020, Raul got accepted into the MACY Program at UTSA. During his time at UTSA, he has held different internships at public accounting firms and companies, including RSM, BKD, Marathon Petroleum, and DOCUmation. This semester, Raul will be interning at PWC as a Risk Assurance intern while starting his first semester of Grad School. 

Why I joined ALPFA: “I came into ALPFA with little sense of business professionalism and lacked understanding of the Accounting Industry. ALPFA allowed me to develop my professional brand, interviewing skills, resume, and other skills that will prove valuable when in a networking event or interview. Since joining ALPFA in 2018, I’ve realized that I want to give back and develop the members of this organization. I was given my first internship opportunity because of ALPFA, and I’m hoping that I can pay It forward. My goal as Director of Education is to make it easier for our members to succeed and help them take advantage of the opportunities ALPFA has to offer.”
