Omar Pulido graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Science in Education. He is 23 years old, born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas.

This allows him to understand the various challenges that someone faces when pursuing higher education. Because of this, he can relate to students and clients he advises as a College access advisor.

He loves to spend time with his dogs and girlfriend. His favorite things to do outside of working in education are playing sports with siblings and attending their games. At 18 years old, he was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes. This has been something that he has had to deal with and overcome throughout college and now his career. It is a characteristic that has made him become stronger and more focused on a healthy, positive lifestyle.
