Ulises comes from the often forgotten part of California, the Central Coast, more specifically the cities of Santa Maria/Guadalupe in Santa Barbara County. As a first-generation, low-income student who is currently getting ready for graduate school, he is passionate about equity, diversity and inclusion in higher education for students of marginalized/underrepresented backgrounds. He is working during his gap year as a Transfer Student Center Academic Achievement Counselor/Program Specialist to continue his work of increasing access to higher education with a focus on transfer students. At the moment, he is excited to hear back from Higher Education M.A./M.Ed programs and hopes to use his Masters as a stepping stone into a Ph.D. or Ed.D program in the near future.
