I am a first year at UCI studying for my B.A. in Education Science and looking to specialize in English Language Learning and Research and Evaluation. Before I came to UCI, I used to work at the Boys and Girls Club, which piqued my interest in teaching english and doing research (with respect to teaching and improvements in curriculum). I’m hoping that gaining research experience now will enable me to explore my interest and help me in the future when I apply for grad school.
Fun fact: I was on the verge of committing to Johnson and Wales University for Culinary Arts, but changed my mind when UCI acceptances came out.
I am a fourth year, first-gen UCI student double majoring in Education Sciences and Psychology and Social Behavior. I am a Peer Academic Advisor in the School of Education and an undergraduate research assistant for the Development in Social Context Lab. Currently, I am interning at the UCI Early Childhood Education Center to broaden my experiences working with young children. My next step in my academic career is to get my Ph.D. in Education and develop ways to support low-income, Latino parents with young children in fostering their academic skills.
Fun fact: I hate scary movies even though I’ve never seen an entire movie.
I am a second year Education Sciences Major, on track to graduate a year early. Upon completing my Undergraduate Education, I plan to pursue a Master of Arts in Teaching. This is my first quarter assisting in research and I look forward to learning all the skills and knowledge that come from being apart of a research project! I believe this research experience will give me insight to children’s home life and their development which will prove to be important when I become an Elementary School teacher in the future.

I am a fourth-year undergraduate student pursuing a B.A. in Psychology and Social Behavior with a minor in Education and I am also the first in my family to attend college. The areas of psychology that most interest me are counseling and clinical psychology.

I intend to take advantage of a gap year after graduation to further explore my areas of interest and to find the master’s program and path that best suit my career goals.
