What brought you to Cal State East Bay?
I remember when Warren Hall was still visible from 580 and I wanted to attend CSU Hayward(at the time). It didn't work out then, but it worked out when it was my time. By then it was CSU, East Bay.
Why did you choose the degree you received? What would your dream job be?
I had obtained my AA in Social and Behavioral Sciences and I talked with my Professor at Merritt College and I asked him if he could do it over what would he do different? He said he would either take Sociology of Psychology. I chose Sociology because it dealt with people and how they interacted with society because my goal it to obtain my Masters of Social Work
What are you involved in on campus (IE: Clubs, student organizations, etc.)? How have they contributed to your personal and professional growth?*
I joined the Orientation Team my first year as a Transfer student. We were coming out of Covid-19 lock down and I wanted to get to know people on campus and also wanted a challenge. Orientation seemed like a perfect way to do that. I also got involved with the newly formed Black Student Success Center. I also applied and was accepted into EXCEL-which helps 1st generation and low-income students with resume writing, internship opportunities, and so many other opportunities
Have you been involved with internships, research, study abroad, or any other experience you’d like to tell us about? Please tell us how these experiences have shaped you personally, academically, and professionally.
Through EXCEL I applied and was accepted for an internship with Highland Hospital. I was there for a short time but I gained skills using their internal computer system-EPIC. Learned about community and agency resources for marginalized communities.
