Meaningful Connections

Aztecs build connections that last a lifetime. Meaningful connections developed with peers, faculty, staff and others across campus, or across the globe, keep students persisting toward a degree, help them learn about who they are as individuals, and build true connections with others at SDSU and beyond.

She is passionate about helping others connect across borders, despite language barriers.
