Why UC Davis?
"I found my family away from home with the Chicanx/Latinx in Health Education student organization, and the FirstGen community has given me the resources I need."
What motivates you?
"I came from a big, beautiful Mexican family, full of resilience and determination. Graduating from UC Davis is not just big for me, it's for us all. I was raised to never let my background or shortcomings get in the way of my goals. I run toward areas where representation is lacking because I want to be part of the solution."
