Graduation Year: Winter 2019, I transferred in to start my junior year
High School Experience: Public school in Huntington Beach, CA with a graduating class of about 350 students. There was a culture of going to college.
First Generation College Student: Yes
Major: Legal Studies
Extracurricular Activities: I’m part of the ASUC Legal Clinic that works on legal cases for students, which is mostly tenant law because a lot of time people need help with their leases. We also do taxes in the spring, so I had to get certified by the IRS to do voluntary income taxes.
What impact has the ASUC Legal Clinic had on your experience?
Because I am a transfer, it’s made the most tremendous impact because I met all my friends through getting involved in the preliminary legal work because we’re all interested in the same field.
How competitive was it to get into the ASUC Legal Clinic?
It was a pretty competitive process just because we had to go through three rounds of interviews. I had also been rejected from other clubs, like Mock Trial.
