Why do you love UCI?

I love UCI for so many reasons. This school provides you with all the opportunities you can imagine and continuously grows every day. To go hand-in-hand with that, the community feeling on campus is unreal and so supportive. Everyone here, along with UCI itself, strives to grow to their best one step at a time.

How can you be a successful Anteater?

Being a successful Anteater first and foremost includes being open-minded. Staying organized, working hard, and trying new things are the top qualities that make an Anteater the best they can be.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I grew up on a citrus farm back home; it is my family business. While I love Irvine, I am also someone who enjoys the country just as much as the city.
