2 CEHD Students Spoke At Summer Commencement

Sophia Zekkour ’19 and Ashley Melgar ‘18 were chosen to speak at the Texas A&M University Summer 2018 Commencement on August 10, 2018.

Ashley Melgar, a human resource development major, gave the the student appreciation speech at the graduation.

Sophia Zekkour, a community health major, delivered the invocation at the event.

Zekkour recalled how impactful her first encounter with the university was when she and her father, who is Algerian, attended a Texas A&M football game. She said her entire life she encountered people making strange faces at her when her father spoke, because they found him hard to understand.

“When I came to this game, we were thrown into a group of Aggies of all ages, and the way that they interacted with my father was incredible,” Zekkour said. “They made him feel just like an Aggie, even though he didn’t go here.”

Her decision to attend Texas A&M was made soon after her first experience in Aggieland.

“After that game, I knew it was a family I wanted to be a part of because they really bring everyone in and make them feel at home, that inclusivity was just what I wanted,” Zekkour said.

When Zekkour began class she was blown away once more at how friendly everyone was.

“I honestly feel like I went to a school where I was meeting myself in others.”

As a student, she was heavily involved in organizations like Aggie BUILD and Fish Camp, as well as undergraduate research.

This past summer Zekkour interned at Health For All, a free clinic in Bryan. She said she was grateful for the internship because she ended her undergraduate career gaining experience in the nursing field.

Once more Zekkour was reminded why she came to Texas A&M through her pre-internship course. “There were 120 of us or so, but we all became very close,” Zekkour said. “I actually really got to know my professors, and they really cared about us.”

Zekkour graduated from Texas A&M one year early and is pursuing nursing at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston this fall.
