Chicanx Studies and Gender Studies

What are your education and career aspirations?

I hope to attend law school one day and become a Civil Rights attorney.

What is a fun fact about you that few people know?

I’m double-jointed and I have an amazing memory. I’ll most likely remember every detail about you.

What is your favorite book/movie/song and why?

Cranes in the Sky by Solange because it was there for me when I truly needed it.

What is your current favorite streaming binge and why?

Pose on FX because it captures the sad realities the LGBTQIA+ community went through in the 80's and ballroom culture makes me feel full inside.

In your spare time, what do you enjoy doing?

I enjoy fashion, sewing, and thrifting for fabric.

How are you practicing self-care during this difficult time?

I am prioritizing my sleep because I know I can perform my best at work and school if I am energized.

How are you adjusting to remote life and what are your tips to stay motivated?

I make a schedule for myself and block out times in my week to do homework, study and watch lectures.

As a Point Community College Scholarship Recipient, what is your message to other LGBTQ+ students?

Always know your worth and that you deserve happiness and success.
