A Little About Myself:

Hey ya'll ! My name is Jacqueline but you are welcome to call me Jackie for short ! (: I am a 4th year transfer student, currently studying sociology in hopes of utilizing the knowledge I acquire to give back to my community. Fun Fact- I have still not adapted to Berkeley’s weather because I was born and raised in East Los Angeles which is located in Sunny SoCal. When I am not overwhelmed with the Cal culture, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our four babies: Nacho the Pug, Chapo the Chihuahua, Ruby the Poodle, and Baby Arturo going on hikes, eating and binge-watching Netflix series.

Previous Institution/Community College:

Rio Hondo College

My Involvement on Campus:

My first semester at Berkeley I decided to strictly stick my academics and adapt to the Cal culture which is why I am very excited to finally have the opportunity to be able to be involved on campus. I am currently interning at the Transfer Center as a peer advisor and Justice Corps. Additionally, I am a Restorative Justice Leader and a part of the SSS Team.

Future Plans:

My future plans are definitely not set in stone, I have various paths in mind which require different steps. I am debating between Law school and Graduate school which is why I have decided to take a year off after graduating to gain work experience which will hopefully give me more clarity.

Ask me about:

My crazy idea to run a half marathon this semester haha but in all seriousness, I definitely have an extrovert personality and can genuinely chat about anything and everything, so please feel free to approach me, I am very friendly and always eager to help! :D
