Transfer Osos provides support to our growing community of Latinx/Chicanx-identifying transfer students through academic counseling, workshops, and community gatherings. Our programs go beyond transition and retention assistance to help our comunidad grow and thrive during their time at Cal.
I am a proud Bay Area native and was a transfer student at UC Berkeley from City College of San Francisco. It was my experience of being a transfer student that lead me to pursue a career in higher education. After Cal, I completed my Masters Degree in Counseling from San Francisco State University. In the spirit of 'lifting as you climb', I strive to use my position to make higher education a more welcoming, accessible, and equitable place for first-gen, underrepresented students. I am privileged to work directly with our Chicanx and Latinx transfer students to provide voice, connection and support to our community at Cal!

I’m from Tijuana, Mexico, and a proud transfer student from Southwestern College. In my last year of Community College I became interested in the Economics of the world so I applied to Berkeley and got in with a major in Political Economy and a minor in Education.
As a first generation Latina student, getting the role of Transfer Osos PAL gives me the opportunity to reach out to other Chicanx/Latinx students, creating friendships and remind them that we deserve to be here!
