~ student short bio ~
B.A. Spanish, University of California, Los Angeles (2021)
I am a current student in the Spanish and Portugues Department at UCLA, avid illustrator for the Daily Bruin, curious reader, and border studies advocate.
My current research under the supervision of Professor Armando Guerrero Jr and Professor Ji Young Kim focuses on the Spanish Varieties, Ideologies, and Maintenance in the borderlands between San Diego and Mexico. As a resident of the border town, I draw my interest from past experiences I have lived in the region.
