Front Desk Receptionist

June 2022 - June 2023 Riverside, CA
“I appreciated the fact that I was offered a job due to my participation in the Academic Resource Center's services. I enjoyed utilizing their tutoring, supplemental instruction, and R'Success workshops, which all helped me during my first academic year at UCR. Thus, many of the professional staff members were already acquainted with me, and were willing to offer me an interview for the opportunity to work and utilize my work-study offer. ”

Highlander Early Start Academy - Peer Mentor

July 2023 - September 2023 Riverside, CA
“I enjoyed assisting first-year students transition from the semester to the quarter system. There was advice that our team of peer mentors and instructors disseminated during our HESA 001 College Success Course that I wish I had taken the opportunity when I was an incoming first year. It was also insightful working with other fellow graduates and Ph.D. students because our team was a diverse mix of majors with varied experiences. For instance, prior to starting this position, I had just finished studying abroad in Oaxaca, MX., whereas another fellow peer mentor was a current undergraduate research assistant with ambitions to apply to medical school. Having these different, yet relevant experiences allowed us to share with one another and offer not only our mentees advice, but each other as well! ”
