Headshot Kyle Santos

I’m really attracted to New Mexico and a lot of its rural environment. The dynamic sunsets and sunrises, the diversity in culture, and the food! I really hope to become a part of Albuquerque’s community and contribute to it by becoming a nurse and helping other New Mexicans in what I can.
