Hi, I work in the LMC EOPS Office as a student ambassador. I am currently attending LMC in pursuit of my AA in Kinesiology and Chicano Studies. I look forward to transferring to either Sac State or CSUEB. My career goal is to become either a high school PE Teacher or an Ethnic Studies Professor at LMC in an effort to give back to the community and promote physical/mental wellbeing among teenagers and historical knowledge of one's own culture
