A Little About Myself:

Hello Cal Transfers, My name is Yesenia Araiza and I transferred to UC Berkeley in Spring of 2016 as a Junior. I was born in Oakland CA, but I consider my hometown to be San Leandro.

Previous Institution/Community College:

I transferred from Merritt College where the Black Panther Party was formed. 

My Involvement on Campus:

I am part of the Transfer Center, EOPS, and the Trio program.

Future Plans:

I am majoring in Sociology and minoring in Chicanx Studies. After Graduating from UC Berkeley I plan to go to Graduate School and get my Ph.D. in Education from the University of Southern Calfornia. My goal is to work with youth who have been ignored by the education system and society.
