Mentoring

As a first generation, low-income student, I often sought out mentors to help me navigate the academic world. However, I still had to learn a lot on my own. Academia is full of unspoken expectations and hidden resources. I want to help others and provide them with the tools and resources that have been helpful to me during my academic journey.

Service

Throughout my time at UCI, I have been heavily involved in the History Graduate Student Association.
