Hi, my name is and I am the new high school bridge liaison for Cerritos College. I started my journey at East Los Angeles College and transferred to California State University, Los Angeles as a Psychology major. As a first-generation college student, I struggled to navigate the higher education system. With the help of counselors and the resources community college had to offer, I got the social support needed to strive and continue my education. I recently graduated from the University of Southern California pursuing a degree in educational counseling. My passion is to help students of all backgrounds and help them fulfill their academic aspirations.
