HJ Coordinator | Sociology and Education Studies Minor 2019
WHY DID YOU BECOME A PART OF SCOPE?
SCOPE offers me the opportunity to use the knowledge that I have obtained throughout my years at UCLA and instrumentally use it in the communities that SCOPE works with. SCOPE also has helped me become more aware of the inequities that the communities we work with encounter in their day-to-day routines.
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO LEAD YOUR SPECIFIC PROGRAM?
I decided to become a coordinator for Hablamos Juntos because I valued the opportunity to interact with the parents that Hablamos Juntos works with. Moreover, I personally connect with the families that Hablamos Juntos works with. I was grew up having speech delay and I experienced the same situations that the parents are going through with their own children.
My fastest mile run is 5:49 secs!
FUTURE GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS
I want to become a tenured-track professor in Education who does research on the k-12 educational experiences of Spanish speaking English Language Learners :)
