While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were

My parents and family who supported and pushed me to follow whatever educational path I desired. My friends were also a great support system, they were there from the late night cramming to the random things we did on the weekends. Lastly, my professors, advisors, counselors, bosses and co-workers who really shaped my experience at SMC.

My favorite SMC memory is

A collection of random activities with friends and working at the library. I loved everything from those long drives, midnight Safeway runs, cooking, watching cringy rom-coms to just staying up late and enjoying each other's company. I also loved working at the Library which became a second home and family to me. I will be forever grateful for my friends and the Library family I've made here.

I'm looking forward to most

Figuring out where my spot is in the world. I want to work towards something that I am passionate about that not only makes me happy but also improves the life of another. I know that this next chapter will be hard, but just like college, I know whatever will come my way I will come out of it as a stronger person leading me towards the person I want to be.
