    3rd Year / Legal Studies and LALS/SOCY major / (She/her)

    Hello my name is Diana Padilla Legaspi, I am from the East Bay and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am a third year double majoring in Legal Studies and Latin America and Latino Studies/Sociology. I chose to work for EOP because I love what they stand for and want to be able to help students like myself be able to navigate university life. EOP has many helpful programs that not many people know about so I want to help others familiarize themselves with these programs. EOP, specifically the Bridge program provided me with a great support system that helped ease my transition to UCSC.

    Hello everyone! My name is Jennifer Martinez and I use she/they pronouns. I am a currently a fifth-year majoring in Sociology and Education with a minor in Latin American Latino Studies. I am a first-generation college student, I grew up in a low-income household and I am a part of the immigrant community.Throughout my time as an undergrad; I have navigated and overcome many obstacles and barriers within and outside of the educational sphere. Which is why I have lots of experience in utilizing the resources on campus–such as Slug Support, the DRC, Renaissance Scholars, EOP, etc.–to the best of my ability. I draw strength and my sense of resistance within institutional spaces though my intersectional identities, lived experiences, and a sense of belonging. Which is why I strongly emphasize the importance of sharing lived experiences and engaging in dialogue because they promote growth in our emotional and critical consciousness. On another note, I am also an aspiring researcher! I am passionate about community-engaged action research that promotes forms of action for and by the community. I am very excited meet all of y'all!
