What do you think is your best attribute?
I would have to say my sense of humor. I love to laugh and make others laugh. I don’t mind being the silly one in the group.
Are you involved in any on campus activities?
Yes, I am a sister of Alpha Pi Sigma Sorority, Inc.
What made you become President for Alpha Pi Sigma Sorority Inc.?
The passion and dedication I hold for this organization made me want to become President. I always said to myself that I would one day be President and lead the organization to reach new heights. When you love something so much you want to do anything in your power to do great things for it and that is how I feel about APS.
Who is your celebrity crush?
Chris Brown for sure!! He is just my type of guy!
What is your favorite thing about UCR?
My favorite thing about UCR is nooners. I love being able to wear letters and feel a part of the Greek community and hang out with friends from different organizations. We all have share similar purposes and have the same goals at the end of the day, so networking with each other is one of the best parts.
What made you want to pursue your major?
I took my first upper division marketing class at UCR and I had heard horror stories about the professor I had, his name was Jasso. Well turned out this class and Jasso became my favorite class and favorite professor at UCR and really motivated me to pursue a career in marketing instead of accounting. Plus I love to meet new people and talk a lot, truly is my passion.
What inspires you and motivates you in life?
My dreams and goals are what keep me motivated in life. I won’t ever stop until all my dreams come true and I reach the success I am working so hard for. My parents are my biggest inspiration. They have sacrificed so much for my sister and I to have a great life, and everything I do is for them as well.
What would be your dream home?
My dream home would be a big penthouse apartment in the heart of New York City. I don’t care for a big house as long as the area I am in is in the city and provides the big city life I have always wanted.
What are you passionate about?
I am very passionate about Alpha Pi Sigma!!! I love my sisterhood and I thank God every day for helping me find this home away from home and my little family here in Riverside. It was very hard adjusting for me in college, but this organization truly changed my entire college experience for the better. It made my college experience what it is.
Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
Ten years from now I hope to have a steady career in marketing, and be making a lot of money! I want to own my own home in 10 years and also buy my parents something very nice, like a cool car they have always wanted. I also hope to be starting my own family, at least engaged or married.
Is there anything you'd like us to know about yourself?
I love meeting new people so if you ever see me around feel free to strike up a conversation with me. :)
