After high school, she attended a community college and signed up for a transfer agreement program that would guarantee her a spot at UC San Diego. Once she arrived, she hit the ground running - getting involved with campus organizations, finding mentors, and participating in research projects. She shares her story including the importance of self care and advice for those just starting their college journeys. (#37241)
