Originally a member of Squadron 16, Leslie Contreras-Ruiz currently serves on Corps Staff.
Off the Quad, Leslie is involved in the Texas A&M Collegiate Sales Team, where she has competed at the national level. Leslie is an active member of the Sales Club, and serves as a campus brand ambassador for Samsung and Celsius.
“I can certainly say that these past three years have not been easy, but they have been worth it. I have made long life friends and have seen myself and others grow along the way. I found myself getting out of my comfort zone and always eager to achieve more, whether it was through leadership opportunities or a chance to make an impact on someone. What comes easy won’t last, what does last won’t come easy,” Leslie said of her time in the Corps.
After graduating from Texas A&M in December, Leslie plans to work full-time in the oil & gas industry as a sales representative.
