Mariela Cueva

My name is Mariela Cueva and I am an Alumna of NECC with a degree in the Business Transfer Program.   While finishing my Business program I became interested in NECC’s  Computer Science Transfer Program and hope to graduate in 2021 -2022.  During my time at NECC, I worked in The Center Business and Accounting and the Professional Studies.   I loved the experience of interacting with students, and faculty.  I had the unique  opportunity to bring my experience as a student and my professional experience into working with students in the Center.  Now, I am embracing the challenge of bringing the Center experience virtually to students as a Student Ambassador while helping students navigate the college, their courses, and campus life.
