Hey, my name is Evelyn. I'm from Oceanside, CA and I went to El Camino High School and graduated in the year 2021. I am a first generation Chicana student and I decided to enroll in the PUENTE program. The faculty involved in this program work very hard for their students to not only graduate but successfully transfer to a UC. That being said, my goals after MiraCosta are to transfer to a UC and get my Bachelor’s degree in a more specific branch of Sociology and then get my Master’s. Outside of school, I love to bake and spend time with my family. My favorite part about MiraCosta is although it is a small campus its students are very diverse. Due to its size, the faculty is very attentive to not only the students but the community. Lastly, there are many programs and services offered again not only for the students but the community as well.
