Growing up in East Oakland as an undocumented student, I never truly envisioned receiving a college education. However, I pushed through and earned a B.A. in Sociology from the University of California, Irvine (UCI). I started by attending Merritt College, after two and a half years I transferred to UCI.

My passion for helping youth in Oakland, not only get to college but graduate from college, comes from my personal experience. Giving back to my community and inspiring others is what I aspire to do everyday. I am so excited to be coming back to Unity and helping students reach their potential.
In my spare time I enjoy attending concerts, exploring new places, trying different foods and working on different art projects.
