POMONA COLLEGE

I am an undergraduate student studying Environmental Analysis, with a minor in French, at Pomona College, in Southern California. With a focus in biology, I explore the environmental factors and anthropogenic influences that impact our lives in the face of a changing climate.

Aside from being invested in my academic career, I am heavily invested in promoting community engagement. I was elected Commisionner of Environmental Affairs on the student senate this year, I am president and founder of a Latina sisterhood, and I have been tutoring high school students on weekends for several semesters now.
