What are your plans after graduation? Your hopes for after graduation?
After graduation my plans are to work for the Probation Department of Juvenile Detention for the County of Los Angeles.

What have you been involved in while at MCU?
Throughout my years at MCU I have been involved as an RA. I have worked as a Team Captain for the New/Transfer Student Orientation Staff in the department of Student Life. I was a senator in MSGA. I worked as a Peer Health Educator. I was involved with the Athletic Department both as a player and an intern (both on and off campus). I worked for the department of Admissions as a office assistant/ new student tour guide as a student worker,  and I also interned with the security department on campus.

What is your favorite memory of MCU?
My favorite memory of MCU will always be the relationships I’ve made over the years with not only my classmates, but with Pro-Staff as well. Every person I have met at MCU has been a blessing and now looking forward everyone I have met has made an impact in my life. Going to dances, and events, hosting as well as planning these things is what kept me going throughout these years, and will always be something I am forever grateful for.

What advice do you have for other students?
My advice for other students would be to HAVE FUN AND ENJOY, go to every event you can, get involved, don’t be shy and be willing to get out of your comfort zone. Life has a funny way of playing out, but at the end of the day, you will always be where you need to be. Remember to be kind and smile always, because time passes way too quickly to not enjoy college to the fullest.

What was your favorite experience at MCU?
My favorite experience at MCU has been being able to work in multiple departments throughout my 4 years. Being able to gain knowledge from all of these departments has helped me tremendously both as a student and as a person.

What was your favorite class at MCU?|
My favorite class at MCU was “Intro to Criminal Justice” taught by professor DiLeva.

Who inspired you at MCU and why?
Everyone I have met at MCU has inspired me to be who I am as a student as well as a person. Every pro staff that I have connected with has inspired me to be successful. Being able to grow as an adult led by their guidance has been a blessing and something I will forever cherish. Without the employees of MCU, there wouldn’t be an institution. Every person at MCU is inspiring in their own way. Another inspiration throughout my years at MCU would be my family, without them I couldn’t have been able to accomplish what I have.
