Hi! My name is Cynthia Martinez. I am a first-generation college student who earned two bachelor’s degrees and a master’s degree from CSUN. I’ve been an outreach counselor at CSUN’s Student Outreach and Recruitment department for 18 years, helping students as early as elementary school. I enjoy taking long walks with my dog, Maximus, and being outdoors. I also like exploring U.S. national parks. One of my goals is to travel to all 50 states — so far, I’ve been to 15.
