Major: Africana Studies
Hometown: Los Angeles and Hesperia, California
CSUN activities: Outreach Internship Program and University Student Union Board of Directors

My favorite CSUN class is Race and Critical Thinking.

The top things I like to do as a CSUN student are being in the University Library, going to Matador Nights, relaxing in the Oasis Wellness Center’s nap pods, getting smoothies from Shake Shack and studying in the Africana Studies Writing Lab.

I wanted to become an Outreach Intern because I am a people person. I am interested in working with high school, community college and international students by providing them with additional resources about CSUN. In this position I hope to become more aware, continue building my professional development and grow in the department.

As an Outreach Intern, I am able to provide information about CSUN to students who are coming into a college setting, transferring from another college and international students coming to CSUN with advice and available resources. I am able to offer guidance in a one-on-one setting, which is initially a more engaged environment. Additionally, I assist with fairs and presentations to high school and community college students. During fairs and presentations, these students are able to leave with information about the California State University application, clubs and organizations, majors and the perks that come with being a student at CSUN.
