Tell us a little about you.

I was raised in Oceanside by mom and grandparents. I love going to the beach, playing the violin and cheerleading!

Why did you choose UC Davis?

I chose UC Davis because of the tight-knit community on campus and throughout town. I love how everyone strives to be the best version of themselves without stepping on everyone's toes. We are a group of competitive, high-achieving students, but not hostile in or outside the classroom.

What do you enjoy doing for fun here?

In Davis, I love going to the farmers market and getting boba with my friends. I also enjoy going to SF to watch the Giants play!

What activities have you been involved in here?

  • UC Davis Cheerleading Team
  • UC Davis Campus Judicial Board
  • UC Davis Tour Guide
  • UC Davis Undergraduate Admissions - Communication Team

What do you like about academics and student life here?

I like how a lot of my classes are seminar-based, which really allows effective, respectful collaboration — a non-hostile environment.

How has UC Davis helped you grow?

Because of the quarter system, I've learned how to manage my time and how to discipline myself.

What would you tell prospective students about UC Davis?

Stingers down and go Ags!
