About: I am a native from Echo Park, a neighborhood located on the outskirts of downtown Los Angeles. While being a sophomore in high school, I began to take classes at my local community college where I learned the importance of having a college degree. After graduating from high school, I enrolled as a full time community college student where I spend two in half years. I will be the first female in my family to obtain a Bachelors degree. Knowing how stressful and difficult it can be when being the first female in the family to attend community college, transfer to a four year university and graduate with a degree has motivated me to help other students, no matter their gender, overcome such difficulties.

Goals: Be a teacher and college professor; help students overcome anxiety problems; motivate individuals, no matter their age, complete their elementary, Jr.high, high school and/or college education; end illiteracy.

Fun Fact: I enjoy watching telenovelas (Spanish soap operas)
