Personal Biography

Why do you love UCI?

I love UCI for the structure of the campus. It has the beautiful Aldrich Park in the center of campus, the campus is more than just buildings and concrete. The campus is just a few miles from the beach and has a beautiful park for students to study, hang out or just enjoy the SoCal sunshine.

How can you be a successful Anteater?

One way to be a successful anteater is to reach out. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, you are not alone. There are so many resources like office hours available to support students. The resources at UCI are to ensure that every anteater can succeed at UCI and beyond!

What is one fun fact about yourself?

A fun fact about me is that I spent most of my childhood living on the U.S Virgin island of St.Croix which is about 62 miles east Puerto Rico.
