    Linguistics

    She, Her, Hers

    Hey y'all! I'm a third year Linguistics major from West Hollywood, California. I'm stoked to be a part of the peer advising team! I've always enjoyed helping people out, so I hope to do that as a peer advisor. College can be really scary, so I want to help guide other students towards what they may be looking for. Hearing what other students have experienced can be more comfortable than talking to others.

    Cognitive Science

    She, Her, Hers

    Hi! My name is Christina, and I’m a third year majoring in cognitive science. I’m from San Francisco. Peer Advising is a great experience that allows you to make an excellent contribution to your school community while you develop leadership and communication skills. Moreover, it will also help you learn how to work with a team of other people working towards a common goal. I think peer advising is also being able to provide students with support and answer their questions. I believe that interaction between peer advisors and students makes the transition between high school and college smoother. I’m excited to gain new skills, friendships, and experiences so that I can create a meaningful impact on the UCSC College Nine/Ten community.

    Fun Facts: I love backpacking; my favorite food is lobster; I play the piano and cello.
