Hello everyone!

My name is Annette Addo-Yobo and I am a sophomore majoring in Psychology with a pre-med concentration. Ultimately, I hope to go to medical school and become a Forensic Psychiatrist. I was born in Ghana, grew up in Canada, and later moved to Allen, Texas at age 13. Outside of the classroom, I am the fundraising chair for Black Student Alliance here on campus and I am an Undergraduate Success Scholar. In my free time I enjoy watching Criminal Minds and Blacklist, reading and playing soccer.

This year, I am very excited to be one of the Multicultural Center’s Student Success Assistants and supporting African and African American students on campus. I believe personal and academic successes are vital components to being a successful undergraduate student, and I want to be able to uplift our community and guide you through your unique path to success.

I love making new friends and meeting new people, so don’t hesitate to stop by and say hello! I am always willing to help out, connect you to resources, and help make UT Dallas your second home. Go Comets!

My name is Joceylin Duarte. I am a Molecular Biology major on a pre-dental track in hopes of one day providing dental care to underserved communities. I am a Mexican-Ecuadorian American and grew up in Houston, Texas. On my free time, you can catch me practicing my photography, playing sports, or binge watching Grey’s Anatomy. I am involved on campus through several organizations and programs. This year, I will serve as the president of the Pre-Dental Association, a member of the leadership committee for AES Cultural Scholars, Historian of Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority Inc., and your Student Success Assistant at the Multicultural Center.

My goal as a Student Success Assistant is to provide leadership opportunities to the Hispanic/Latinx student community on campus. In a time where representation of our minority community is very much needed, I aim to provide students the encouragement and ability to demonstrate their opinions or ideas in social, political, and professional environments.

I hope to have the support and involvement of the comets that support my mission to raise the Hispanic/Latinx UTD community. Feel free to visit me at the Multicultural Center to share ideas, figure out how you can become active with the MC, or simply chat!
