Monica Lopez-Lara

A Little About Myself:

Hello! My name is Monica and I am a 4th year student majoring in Chicanx Studies. I was born and raised in the Sacramento area. 

Previous Institution/Community College:

 I transferred to Cal from Sacramento City College.

My Involvement on Campus:

In addition to being an intern at the Transfer Student Center, I am also a member of the Latinx Association of Transfer Students (LATS) and a member of Trenza.

Future Plans:

In the future I’m looking forward to continuing my mission of empowering first-generation and low-income students of color to be successful! I hope to receive a graduate degree in education or counseling in order to be a resource to students in their educational endeavors. Once I establish my career, I hope to travel often and own multiple corgis!  

Ask me about:

Ask me where to find the best horchata in Berkeley.
