Pilar Garcia is on the same track as what I’m assuming is one of her friends Debora. She’s currently a criminal justice major, but plans to switch to Human Development (see last weeks interview). Currently a sophomore, she chose CSULB because she believes it’s the best Cal State school. she works at a frozen yogurt store in order to support herself. She;s the oldest of 5 children, the opposite of Debora, Unlike Debora, she never even thought much about art before taking this class, which opened her up to the different forms and functions it could take.
Debora is currently a pre-nursing major but she is really interested in the Human Development field, which I had never even heard of before she told me what it was. It’s a freaky combination of Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology and even the growth of human being from adolescence to adulthood. She wants to move away from nursing because there are too many already in the program, although she’s likely to keep it as a back-up. She is the 4th daughter out of 5 and has gotten used to sharing over the years. She commutes to school from LA where she works at Ross, with her friends. She enjoys this class but wishes there were a few more hands-on projects.
Bryan has already rocketed off the the starting line toward his new life. He’s a business management major, spurred on by his mother and father, which are a manager of a shipping dock and a general contractor respectively. he currently works as the manager of a pizza shop, already getting valuable experience into the management world, He’s always liked the leadership role and getting people to work together towards a bigger goal, During his free time he likes to go out and drink with his friends (LEGALLY!!) and try new beers. He seems like an all-around nice guy to be around.
Jacob is a shy, meerkat of a person who’s still trying to figure himself out. Originally a pre-business major, Jacob is thinking of switching to some kind of a science where he feels more at home. He’s entirely sure which one, but it’ll come to him. he currently dorms on campus and hopes to some day get his PhD and have some sort of research career where he’ll research medicine and be a weird half doctor, half scientist hybrid.
Amber Luna is a quiet girl who looks like she enjoys a good book. She’s a criminal justice major here at CSULB, spurred on by her drive to help people. Criminal justice is just her way of doing that. She loves the arts, but had a very narrow-minded idea of it before taking Art 110. The class has definitely helped her broaden her mind on what art is, and she’s excited to explore it more. Her favorite project has been going to Venice Beach and tagging the legal art walls.
Leticia is currently a Kinesiology major with hopes of using it to become a PE teacher. However all of that is secondary to her dream of becoming a member of the police force. The interesting thing about her is that she lives really close to my home town, and even knows some people that went to school with me. She is a freshman at CSULB, but she likes it more than her High School thanks to the freedom of schedule and the lack of restrictions. She enjoys sports and physical activity, and she wants to spread that enthusiasm to her students in the future.
Henatay is a Freshman infected with Wanderlust. A nerd after my own heart. A man of the people. In general a fun guy to meet at parties. He has a natural friendly attitude that he eases into with anyone he meets, and I’m gonna be honest I got a bit of a bro-crush on. If my wonderful girlfriend, Megan, wasn’t in the picture, who knows!?
In all seriousness though, Henatay enjoys playing board games in his spare time, inviting me to the school’s own gaming club, of which he is a primary member. he is currently undeclared, not because he doesn’t like anything, but because he likes everything and just can’t decide which one he should settle on. Despite his looks he is just a freshman, loving the college experience, especially compared to the cliques and social conventions of High School. All around nice guy.
