I am a Physiology major with an emphasis in Genetics. Once I achieve my masters I hope to pursue a Ph.D. in either Wild Life conservation or Reproductive Physiology. With this degree I hope to develop innovative techniques for restoring critically endangered species and introducing them back into the wild. It is my dream to teach biology at the college level while working along side with San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research.

I am an aerospace engineering major. I am a patient and hardworking individual with the ability to adapt to various work environments. I always look for environments that will utilize my current abilities and aid the development of new skills. As I continue my educational career, I would like to graduate with a bachelor’s in Aerospace Engineering and proceed into the private industry. I dream of the day that I could help create a convenient environment which will benefit those who work in transportation via aircraft.

I am a first generation college student. On campus, I am involved in numerous clubs/organizations such as the Marine Biology club, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers Chapter (SHPE) and the Puente Program. Outside of school, I work at an amusement park on the weekends as well as spending time with family and friends in my spare time. My major is Biology. Topics such as animal behavior, biogeology and evolution have always fascinated me while growing up. Beyond my educational journey here at Cypress College, I plan on furthering my academic career by transferring to either UC Santa Barbara or San Diego State University to achieve both my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Ecology, Behavior and Evolution. I aspire to one day create my own nonprofit charity in wildlife and conservation in order to save endangered animals in the wild from extinction and help restore their depleting habitats.

I am a first generation student, proud product of immigrants, and a parenting student. A second year neuroscience undergraduate concurrently on the pre-medicine journey and have been fortunate enough to participate in Biomedical Research at UC Irvine. After working with seniors with neurodegenerative diseases and their families, I decided to make my life altering decision to pursue a major in neuroscience in order to have a better understanding of the causes and mechanisms of age-related neurological diseases and degeneration. I’m passionate about mentoring future generation of students and actively serve as Cypress College Associated Students Executive Vice President. My current goals include transferring to a four year university for a Bachelors of Science in Neuroscience. My long term academic goal is to enter an MD-PhD program with specialties in neurosurgery and biomedical engineering research.

I am an AB 540 first-generation college student. I was part of the Puente Class #19 and the EOPS program. My major is Mechanical Engineering. One thing I admire about engineering is that engineers work together and rely on each other to succeed. I had the pleasure and opportunity to do Summer Research at CSUF with Dr. Gina Passante in Physics Education. I plan to transfer to either CSU Poly Pomona or UC Davis to achieve my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Mechanical Engineering. As an engineer, I will help build a better world for our future generations.

I am first-generation college student pursuing a degree in Biology. My ultimate goal is to obtain a Masters in Biology and teach specifically at a community college.  As a student, I discovered the various positive impacts technology has on student achievement, and I hope to invent new styles of teaching that incorporate the use of technology and social media to increase learning success rates.
