I grew up in Los Angeles just a few miles away from USC and I remember walking through campus as a kid and being amazed by all the majestic buildings. In 2012, I began my career in higher education at UCLA and worked in both financial aid and undergraduate admission. After almost three years, I decided to join the admissions team at the University of Redlands where I had the opportunity to lead their international recruitment efforts and do some diversity work. I love to travel, eat, watch reality shows, and see Beyonce in concert!
USC is located in Los Angeles, a global city with a vast array of cultural and professional opportunities. The variety of academic endeavors—like research—that students are able to take advantage of are truly incredible.
Although it is always a great idea to get advice from folks during this process, always remember that YOU are the one that is ultimately applying to college. Don’t be afraid to brag about your accomplishments to show us how amazing you are. This is your time to shine!
