Life at La Verne

Life at La Verne


Hometown: Downey, CA
Class Year: 2023
Major: English
Campus Involvement

I am a member of Phi Sigma Sigma, a guard on the women’s basketball team, an honors mentor and scholar of the Global Ideas Honors Program, and a residential assistant.

Home Away From Home

You can find me in the gym, the library, or at The Spot because I love to eat!

Lessons Learned

The countless memories and friendships I have made in the classroom, on the court, and on campus are moments that I will forever cherish. I have made some of my closest friends and have learned the power of community.

Good Eats

On campus, I like eating at Barbara’s Place—breakfast burritos are my favorite! Off campus, I’ll head to the IV Juice Bar and grab an acai bowl with Nutella.

What is the best way to make new friends at University of La Verne?

Get involved, step out of your comfort zone, and do more than one extracurricular activity. You’ll broaden your interests and meet more people that way.

A Crowning Achievement

It was such a fantastic opportunity to compete in America’s Miss California Pageant and serve as America’s Miss California 2021. It has also been a great honor to volunteer within the community.

Money Matters

As a first-generation college student, receiving the Presidential Scholarship was a tremendous financial help for me and my family. The university’s financial aid undoubtedly made my dreams of pursuing higher education a reality and I am truly grateful.
