Jeni Alvarado

Hi everyone! My name is Jeni Alvarado and I am a third-year Sociology major. I am from Novato CA, a small town in Marin County in the Bay Area. I am the oldest of four and the first in my family to go to college. After earning my bachelors in Sociology, I plan to pursue a masters degree in hopes that I will work with students by guiding them towards a pathway of success and a higher education. A fun fact about me is that I was able to participate in the 2018 Immigrant Day of Action in Sacramento. I was able to speak to a congressman about passing healthcare for all. I enjoy long hikes and being outdoors. I am very excited to work with all of you this academic year. Feel free to reach out to me if you need any assistance.

I am originally from San Jose California and this is my second year working for the Fiat Lux Scholars Program. After my time here at UC Merced, I hope to go to medical school and become a psychiatrist specializing in addictions. I look forward to having another opportunity to help and assist students in navigating their time here at UC Merced. I thoroughly enjoy cooking and baking for my friends and family as well as building meaningful relationships with those around me. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or if you just need someone to talk to.
