Mario Sanchez

Mario Sanchez is a first-year graduate student pursuing an M.A. in History at the University of Texas at El Paso, where he also received his B.A. in History. Prior to residing in the United States, he lived in Mexico for 15 years developing his interest in Mexican history that ultimately transformed into his research. During his undergraduate career, Mario worked with his mentor, Samuel Brunk, on the social and economic effects of the American Prohibition in Mexico during the 1920s and early 1930s. Besides his current research, he is also interested in 19th and 20th century Mexican history. 

When he is not “devouring” books and writing papers, Mario enjoys playing futbol and listening to music. He has volunteered as a soccer coach for a local high school and has worked in the school system supporting students academically; however, he likes to pay special attention to students coming from other countries to guide them the same way that he was once guided.
