Monica Villalobos

Hi! My name is Monica Villalobos and I am 21 years old. This is my fifth semester at WCC and I’m transferring next Fall. I’m majoring in Psychology and I plan to either transfer to UC Davis or Sacramento State. My career goal is to work in higher education because I enjoy working with students and helping them succeed in college. My favorite thing about WCC is that if you need help with anything, the staff is always there to help you. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, listening to music, and traveling.

Hi! My name is Brenda Lomeli. I am a mom and a first generation college student.  My major is Communication Studies and I hope to transfer to UC Davis or Sacramento State in Fall of 2020. My short-term goal is to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Public Speaking and a minor in Psychology or Sociology. One thing I know for sure is that I want to help empower women in my community to get a higher education and take better care of themselves because our mental health matters since they already sacrifice so much for their families. I hope to become a motivational speaker one day to help others with their struggles in life . My favorite thing about the WCC is the staff; they dedicate and commit themselves to students and their success. The staff makes me feel supported and they always encourage me to believe in myself and trust the journey. The services at Woodland Community College is a huge help for students in their transition to a four year university. My goal is to build a community here on campus, where everyone feels safe and supported. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, yoga and spending time with my family.
