Public Affairs Officer
United States Army
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
Major: Political Science
"Starting from the age of 19, I served in the Army from 2011-2015 as a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Specialist. During my first year of service, I was overseas in South Korea, where I oversaw and implemented chemical defense training for soldiers in the Demilitarized Zone. I was later promoted to an E-5 Sergeant until the completion of my service.
As I transitioned out of the military, I knew I wanted to continue my education and decided to begin my educational career at Pierce College. During my time at Pierce, I became a Student Senator and represented the college at the Student Senate for California Community Colleges General Assembly. Soon after graduation, I decided to transfer to Cal.
I am privileged and honored to have the opportunity to attend UC Berkeley and serve in the Cal Veterans Group as the public affairs officer. I believe this group does invaluable work to provide a community and resources for student veterans. My goal is to keep those traditions alive, so that student veterans have the necessary tools to succeed well after their time in Cal.
