Why do you do this work?: 
I have always had a passion for social justice work and can’t believe I get to do this everyday with students that are also passionate about equity work. My long-term goal is to go on and positively impact college campuses in my role by continuing to build spaces and advocating for marginalized students on campus.

Why do you do this work?:
This position fits well with both my values and interests as I feel passionate about uplifting the Latino/a community and advocating for equity amongst marginalized groups. As a first generation Chicana scholar, I understand first handedly the difficulties and challenges that our Latino/a students go through. Therefore, through this role, I will strive to develop campus wide programming and services that cover these issues in order to make the Fresno State campus a more inclusive, safe, and equitable space.
