What I wish I had known when I was in college: I wish I would have known that it's okay to not have it all figured out. Attending university is a great accomplishment, and it also comes with a lot of change. The #1 thing to remember is that you have lots of caring people here at UC San Diego who want to see you succeed.

What does being first-generation mean to me? As a first-generation college student myself, I've come to realize that being first-generation means you're charting a new path, while being motivated and fueled by your roots and your family and community's story.

Top goals for the year:

  1. Continue to support and lead the Student Success Coaching team to reach new heights and better serve first-generation students
  2. To have my dissertation research published
  3. To explore more of San Diego's great adventures
