I am from: San Juan Capistrano, CA
Academic Major/Minor: Politcal Science Major/ Spanish Minor
Outside of class I: I spend my time working for the Community Engagement Center and the Pomona Day Labor Center. I also spend my time working in the Claremont community by being a AYSO Soccer coach in the Claremont area for U-10 Girls. I also love to listen to music, especially Frank Ocean, play Rummy 500, and watching different shows on Hulu.
I am at Pitzer because: When picking a school it was important to me that the school had ideologies that not only reflected who I was, but also put those ideologies into practice. Being at Pitzer not only am I able to learn about different communities, but I am also able to go out to those communities and help them in any way Pitzer is able to. I especially resonated with Pitzer’s core value of student engagement. Being at Pitzer I have been able to connect with the Pomona Day Labor Center through the Community Engagement Center, which has been an integral part of my Pitzer experience. From the very first step I took at Pitzer, I knew I wanted to come here and I am fortunate enough to call Pitzer my home.
My favorite place in S. California is…My favorite place in California is Laguna Beach. Growing up in San Juan Capistrano, Laguna Beach was always a close distance away. The beaches are not only a beautiful sight, but the streets are filled with friendly people. Laguna Beach not only reminds me of family beach days, but it also reminds of weekend adventures with my friends at the last minute. Laguna Beach has amazing food and desserts, and though it is an hour and a half away from Pitzer, the voyage is always worth it.
