I was born and raised in The Bronx, N.Y. and am a proud POSSE Scholar! I was able to work at my alma mater for six years in their admissions office, which exposed me to this ever-evolving world of undergraduate admissions. While there, I traveled all over Southern California and just felt so much at home all those many travel seasons. Who would have thought that a TRUE New Yorker would love California? Nevertheless, to be able to now call Southern California home is truly the song title from “New York to California.”
I always trust my gut and when I stepped on this campus, I just knew I had to be here. Laugh if you must, but I feel at peace here! The spirit, the pride, the electricity and space to be as you are, makes USC a place for me. Plus, let’s be honest, there is something about that California sun glowing on the red brick that makes it hard not to love!
Take it day by day. This process is not about my interests and wants; this is about you! Don’t worry about what you think I may want to see or hear. My job is to meet you where you are, not make you what you have yet to be!
