Major: Anthropology
Minor: History
Graduation Date: June 16, 2018
Not Counted Because: Transferred; Started Part-Time

When I first enrolled in community college back in 2011, I was a part-time student because I was working one or two jobs and was not sure about what academic path to take. Once identifying that anthropology is the field for me, I decided to transfer to UCLA because I knew this institution would provide me with a great amount of opportunities and resources.

After graduation, I plan to work as a teacher and eventually attend graduate school.To me, having a college degree is everything. My college degree represents the historical trajectory of my academic journey and all of the ups and downs that have been a part of finding my place within education.
