I had to learn that it was ok to not know things and ask!


My road in life took a while to figure out.
I went to community college and discovered I wanted to major in Anthropology.
Then I transferred to California State University Fullerton.
I was able to make important connections that would help me discover my true passions.
I became fluent in sign language and was able to help deaf students and freelanced as a translator.
Graduated from California State University Fullerton and now work at Rio Hondo Community College.
Keep following my journey



I currently serve as the Director / Administrator of disabled student services program (DSPS) at Rio Hondo College.

Day to Day

There is no specific routine that each of my days follow. Each day at my job as administrator is always different and busy. I am content with this aspect of my job because it keeps me on my toes and adds some spice into every day. There are days with meetings and deadlines and so much more but every day is made better since I have managed to get along with my coworkers and even superiors.

Advice for Getting Started
