I was born in Colusa, California, and raised there for most of my life. I graduated from Colusa High School in 2019, then joined Woodland Community College and TRIO that same year. Going into my first year of college I did not know what I wanted to do. I had no major, and I wasn’t motivated. Something I did have was TRIO. This program encouraged me to do better, and taught me skills that I know I will utilize for a long time. I recently decided to major in Computer Science, and one of my goals is to transfer to California State University, Sacramento. I hope to be able to make a difference in my community during my time working as a peer mentor.

I was born and raised in Colusa, Ca. I graduate from Colusa High School and begin pursing my degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology and a minor in International Studies at CSU Chico. This is my second year attending Chico State and if you really knew me you would know that my heart is towards SCIENCE. I truly believe that TRIO works because I witness the benefits myself as a student. Being part of the TRIO family I am really honored to be able to give back to the TRIO community by getting the opportunity to guide the Williams High School UB students' towards college.

I was born and raised in Woodland. I graduated from Pioneer High School in 2018, during my time in high school I was a cheerleader and a member of AVID. I am also a first-generation college student. After WCC, I plan on transferring to the University of Washington and getting my degree in history and becoming a high school teacher or a college professor. I am thankful that the TRIO program is here to help students transfer and help them with their future educational goals.
