Position Title
Student Assistant, 2019-20


Hello, my name is Norma, I am from Oxnard and Oceanside, California. I am a senior studying Spanish and Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior. My mom is my major motivation for getting my degrees, she is a single parent who has worked very hard her whole life as a campesina. Her strength is something I admire and I want to make her proud by giving us a better life because she has given me everything she can. My mom is Zapotec, and when she came to the US she not only spoke no English but she only spoke some Spanish since her first language was Zapoteco. Being around my family and friends is my favorite thing and I also love to watch sports, especially football!
