Personal Biography

Why do you love UCI?
I love UCI because of the amount of support given to First-Generation Students. Not only financially but also socially; there are many departments on-campus that work together to create events for First Generation Students! As a First Generation student, this helped me transition into college and encouraged me to find my place at UCI.

How can you be a successful Anteater?
I have two words for you, REACH OUT! It took me a while to realize that professional staff is really there to help their students. UCI faculty not only care about your academics but also how you are doing in other areas of life. They are an amazing resource that can help you become a successful Anteater!

What is one fun fact about yourself?
Goats are my favorite animal, so much that part of my bucket list is to own a Goat Farm or attend a Goat Yoga session!
