Archarida is a College Success Program Manager for the Place Based Texas State University Team, a partner of College Possible Texas. As a native Austinite, you’ll probably see Archarida repping the Longhorns often even though she may or may not know anything about sports. Although she may be a Longhorn at heart, Archarida is a graduate of Sam Houston State University where she studied Biomedical Sciences and minored in both Health Science and Chemistry (Go Bearkats!). After finishing her degree, Archarida was so inspired by her CoFo friends and former Access Coach that she decided to move back home to serve herself, where she served two terms at both Elgin High School and LBJ ECHS as a College Access Coach. As a Program Manager, Archarida is very excited to follow many of her former students into the College Success Program while also being able to support a team of amazing coaches so that they feel empowered and able to provide the best services to our students.
While Archarida is not reacting to every CoFo slack message with a Drake or corgi slackmoji, you can find her taking photos with a camera from her “camera collection,” romanticizing her cooked meals like she’s Gordan Ramsey, or watching way too many TikTok videos till she falls asleep.
