Josue Estrada Murillo

Office Coordinator

Josue is an immigrant from Mexico, a first-generation student; a Deacon through his church. On May 14th, 2022, he will join his brother, who currently holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s in accounting, and will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. He aspires to become a physician but plans on taking a gap year before applying for medical school. During this gap year, he will work on becoming a competitive candidate but most importantly adjust to the life of a homeowner.

 

In 2019, he gained his national and state licensure to practice as an Emergency Medicine Technician (EMT). During 2020, Josue was able to practice his EMT skills through Falck with an emphasis on COVID vaccinations, participating in equity clinics across Colorado where he had the privilege to vaccinate his mother and brother.

 

Josue has different connections with the Boettcher Foundation. He is a 2018 UCD Scholar, an Alumni Ambassador, and previous Student Intern for the 2019 and 2022 cycles.

He currently lives in Aurora, where he has lived since he migrated from Mexico in 2007, with his mother and brother.
