Cal State L.A. experience:

* "My professors, specifically my mentor Dr. Ester Hernandez, guided me through the thesis writing process and gave me the confidence that I need as I continue my education."
* "I have nothing but positive things to say about Cal State L.A. My experiences were academically and personally fulfilling."

Why Cal State L.A.?

* "My focus on Latina/o students in Southern California motivated me to continue my studies at Cal State L.A."

Future Plans:

* "Once I finish my doctoral degree, I would love to come back and teach within the CSU system."
