As a peer mentor at Cal State Northridge, I was trained to create action plans for students that related to college-oriented goals, such as teaching students how to research college options as well as how to register for FAFSA. My group and I have led numerous informational workshops for several after-school cites and continuation schools in the San Fernando Valley, discussing the benefits of college with facts, statistics, as well as personal and positive accounts of our college careers.
I received my Bachelor's degree in Sociology at Cal State University of Northridge in December 2012. In college, I took a plethora of sociology classes: from Sex and Gender, to Organizations Theory, and to Sociological Theory. I have an extensive and detailed knowledge of Sociological theory, as well as a conceptualization of Research and Methods. I have written several research papers and thesis papers based on Sociological research, method, and the employment of theory.
As a Sociology Major, I have taken several criminology classes that enhanced my background knowledge of the justice system and the social implications of laws, practices, and public policies relating to persecution. I was also involved in an internship with LAPD supervisors, working on the side of police officers by implementing cite rules and regulations for after-school programs.
