Juan Robles Nava

I am a third-year Political Science major and plan to also major in philosophy as I have developed a profound interest in it. I am a first-generation college student and am the oldest in my family. I am a DREAMER and enjoy helping others as much as I can. Some of my hobbies consist of playing the electric guitar, working on cars, going outdoors, working out and reading. I hope to assist you in any way I can and help you succeed as a first-generation student.

Elisa Garcia:

Hi, my name is Elisa. I am a third-year Political Science major. Coming from Los Angeles to Merced was a big difference. As the middle child of five siblings, I had a blast being in or out of trouble. I had the chance to run my very own elementary class by going to UC Merced. I realized from that experience my passion is empowering and helping out the youth. As a Political Science major, I have explored my profession by attending a UCSA conference and joining a professional law fraternity. LA is home but without Merced, I won't have learned more about who I am and the opportunities I can do to get there.

Office Hours: Monday and Wednesday 12:45 PM - 2:15 PM
