I am the first in my family to attend a four-year college. I grew up all over the San Fernando Valley. I moved a lot growing up. School has always been very important to me. My family motivates me to strive for the best. I want to make my family proud in everything I do. I enjoy learning new things and improving my skills. I enjoy writing essays that connect to my personal experiences; it makes me feel more comfortable writing. I love expressing my feelings in writing as well. I am marketing major here at CSUN. I also plan on minoring in apparel merchandising. My academic goal is to be the first in my family to graduate from a four-year college and earn a degree. One of my life long goals is to travel around the world. So far I have only been to Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and England.
