    Latin American and Latino Studies / Senior

    I enjoy working at the Undocumented Student Services Sub Unit at EOP because I get to interact with students every day and watch them grow as the year goes by. Watching them grow and feel empowered through the resources I am able to provide through the office makes this job so enjoyable. My passion has always been helping students further their education so they create change in their own communities and through this internship I am able to do that.

    Sociology / Latin American and Latino Studies / 5th Year

    I enjoy working at EOP because as a first generation undocumented student I know first hand the struggle of transitioning from high school to college. The support I receive helped me overcome academic barriers and created a sense of belonging for me at UCSC. As I approach graduation I continue to foster aspiration for the future to make the world a better place and I know EOP will support me along the way.

    I love working at EOP because it has allowed me to work with other students and support them to achieve their academic and personal goals.
    I’m really passionate about giving back to the undocumented community and working at EOP has allowed me to do just that. For me, knowing that our office is creating and making a change for undocumented students is the reason why I walk into our office with a smile on my face every single day.

    I enjoy working at EOP because I am able to help those who I consider my community. This is my third year working at EOP and as a student, I have gained so many skills that I hope to apply to my professional career in the future. At EOP it really is the place that is like my home away from home because I have the support of my fellow EOP interns and academic advisors to rely on. I hope to take all that I learn at EOP a take it back to my community once I graduate.
