UC Irvine – 2018, B.A. candidate, social sciences

Jennifer was born and raised in South Los Angeles, California. She is currently in her senior year double majoring in Psychology and Political Science, and she is set to graduate in June of 2018. In 2014, she graduated from the Magnet Program in South East High School. She was President of the Student Council from 2012-2014 and qualified for the California Interscholastic Federation for her swim team for two consecutive years. It was those experiences where she realized her drive to empower and lead her fellow peers.

When deciding which University to go to, UC Irvine was her immediate choice. No competition.

In her first quarter of freshman year, she became involved with the Student Alumni Association (SAA), and has been involved in the organization ever since. She currently serves as the President for the 2017-2018 year. Since being involved with the organization, she has encouraged others to become active in their University and inspires her peers to become Anteaters for Life.

Besides being a part of SAA, she is also involved in Greek Life as a member of the sorority, Gamma Phi Beta.

Zot Hard!
