I was a transfer re-entry student at UC Berkeley; I graduated with a degree in English Literature. I transferred to Cal from Cerritos Community College in Los Angeles. I grew up in Downey, California not too far from Cerritos College. I spent many years floating in-and-out of community college, until I me a community college professor who took an interest in my transfer experience; he mentored me and helped me navigate higher education. Without his guidance, I never would have had the amazing experience I did as a transfer student at Cal. As an Academic Achievement Counselor for the Transfer Student Center, I hope to foster academic, professional, and personal growth of transfer students here at UC Berkeley.
If you see me around campus, please introduce yourself. I'd love to hear your transfer story!
