- Native American Academic Student Services Center
Adriana Martin is a proud first generation Mexican-American college graduate and is one of five children. She earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Chicana/o Studies (minored in English) from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles and her Master in Business Administration from the University of San Francisco. She understands first hand the investment of sacrifice, time, “ganas” and hustle it takes to enjoy the sweet payoff of achieving academic and professional goals. The win is for self, family, and community.
Her StrengthFinders top five themes are connectedness, relator, arranger, empathy, individualization. She is not deterred by constantly changing circumstances and is passionate about using her skillset to creatively support students, staff, and the community. She enjoys configuring and aligning synergies while looking for win-win solutions. She gently carves out tiny and big moments of joy for herself by listening to beautiful music, meditating, going for long walks, biking, exploring family-friendly activities, and connecting with friends. She can also be found lugging around her camera to capture moments in time. Favorite mantras: “I didn’t come this far to only come this far.” “If I can dream it, I can manifest it.”
