    History, Literature Minor / Senior / She, Her , Hers

    My name is Amit, I am a 4th year History major. I love to go on hikes with my dog Lennon and hammock under the trees. I chose to work for EOP as a USS intern because I want to make sure that students who are in a similar situation as me are aware of the resources and opportunities that our office offers. I am passionate in advocating for undocumented student needs in order for them to have equality and equity in higher education institutions.

    Intensive Psychology / Senior / She, Her, Hers

    I am from Compton and I am a first generation woman of color. I have a background in being a tutor for children but also a mentor for UCSC. The reason why I chose to work with EOP was because of the community. In EOP you can open up and talk about your barriers, worries, and achievements. There is always an academic counselor welling to help you financially, academically, and emotionally. EOP is there to help you reach your goals and ambitions. I can say from experience that EOP has been by side for all my three years at UCSC now being my last year here!

    Latino Studies / Junior / She, Her, Hers

    Hello, I am from Salinas, California. I love to run, read and do my makeup. I chose to work as an USS mentor because I grew up in a mixed status family and witnessed the struggles students and families alike face in this system due to their status. As a first-generation student, I know finding one's place in this institution can be difficult. I hope to be able to serve as a good guide to the undocumented students of this institution as a mentor.

    Hello! My name is Alondra Flores and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am currently a fourth year, first generation student at UCSC and a Kresge College affiliate.
