    EDS Major/Minor: Double Major in Education Sciences (Pathway 3), Language Studies - Spanish, and minor in Writing

    Graduate school & field of study: M.Ed/Single-Subject (Spanish) Credential Program at UCSD

    Workplace: Bonita Vista Middle/Intern Teacher for Native Spanish classes

    Any advice/insight to current UCSD students: "More than anything, the advice I give to current students is to put yourself out there! I would be in a much different place currently if I let my fears and doubts control me; taking the initial step is always scary, but trust me when I say that you will open so many doors and opportunities when you start doing this more often. Take a deep breath, be confident in your decisions, and experience everything that our school, department, and programs have to offer."
