Latinx student, first-generation student, child of immigrants
I am a first-generation student and child of immigrants; my parents are from Mexico. I am currently studying Latin American Studies at UCLA where I am specializing in colonial Central Mexico, Mesoamerican codices, and learning a third language. I like to run and workout for fun! However, I especially love to cook, and I am always trying new foods!
Always keep your options open, and never believe it is too late to do anything! In the end, financial security AND happiness should matter. You should have a career plan, and a dream career plan (ex: my career plan is to become a professor. My dream job plan includes making enough time to volunteer at local organizations, become an adult literacy tutor, and offer free community courses on the history of Mexico).
