BA in English with a minor in Spanish Translation, UHD (Fall 2018)
I’ve always loved reading and writing, so it wasn’t difficult deciding that I would Major in English while in college. I’m very proud of my Mexican heritage, and as a native Spanish speaker, it felt natural to want to Minor in Spanish Translation as well. Outside of academics, I’m very passionate about animals, particularly dogs, and when I have free time I like to feed some of the strays near my home. Other than that, I enjoy spending time with my own 2 dogs, baking, drawing, watching tv, and eating sushi.

I love words, both speaking and writing. Being able to articulate what we think and feel is an important aspect of being human, one in which we all can grow. In being a tutor, my hope is to encourage others to express their individuality - their perspective that no one else has. My interests include all Social Sciences as well as English and Spanish Literature, Poetry and Creative Writing. I'm an activist, specifically focusing on clean water for developing countries and animal welfare. For relaxation, I focus on cooking (particularly for special diets such as gluten-free or Paleo) and gardening. I am also in the early stages of a meditation practice, which is both challenging and rewarding.

BA in English and Humanities, UHD (Spring 2018)
In her 1993 speech for the Nobel Prize Award in Literature, Toni Morrison said, "We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives." Morrison's words have remained with me through the years, inspiring me to pursue a double major in English and Humanities with a concentration in Critical Race Studies. I choose to believe the language I create in this world will make an impact, regardless of its measure. With this in mind, I am passionate about literature, creative writing, poetry, visual arts, and social justice -- race, gender, sex, sexuality, immigration, education, etc. You can always find me writing an essay or a scary story -- the occult fascinates me. You will certainly find me at a local museum admiring the work of artists, and most importantly always working on a cause I am passionate about.
