Undergraduate Interns

  • UCC Responsibilities: Co-facililitate Feel Better Now workshops, facilitate mindfulness meditations, conduct outreach, provide social justice oriented macro interventions. 
  • Professional interests: I want to be able to provide help to students, to learn from them and my peers about their views of mindfulness and social justice, and to grow as a student and as a member of society. I hope to be able to apply this to my majors and to whatever job I have in the future.
  • Personal Interests: I love reading and writing (I do it mostly in Spanish). I enjoy being very politically active and volunteering. I love basketball. I like binge watching Netflix or Hulu, depending on the show. I really enjoy keeping myself busy. Traveling is something that I love to do, although I haven’t done it as often as I would like to.

  • Professional Interests: I am a student majoring in both film/animation and EAE/games. I find it deeply important and interesting to use different forms of media for advocacy, positive representation, entertainment, and healing. Additionally, as a creator, it is important to subvert the ideals, stereotypes, and tropes that dominate mainstream media. In the future, I would like to start a small studio that centers the stories of marginalized voices and that fiercely advocates for workers’ rights in the field.
  • Personal Interests: I love videogames–my current favorites include PikuNiku, Hyper Light Drifter, and Persona 5. I am an avid thrifter, and love to restore or repurpose clothing and furniture. Along my thrifting travels, I have amassed a sizeable collection of silly ceramics. When I’m not holed up in my apartment playing videogames or watching movies, I love to be in the outdoors. Hiking and painting outside are some of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon.

  • Professional Interests: Currently, I am a third-year student studying criminology and social work at the University of Utah. After my undergraduate experience, I hope to attend an MSW/JD graduate program to work in child welfare. I would love to research family/interpersonal violence and adversity in childhood/adolescence to implement new policies to ensure that our future generations are able to have the lives they deserve.
  • Personal Interests: My personal interests lie in mental health awareness, social justice advocacy, and community engagement.

  • Professional Interests: I am currently studying psychology at the bachelor’s level with the hopes of going to graduate school for clinical psychology. I would love to practice therapy, particularly through the lens of coping with trauma and substance abuse treatment, while conducting research in a college setting.
  • Personal Interests: Personally, I love hiking and rock climbing, although I spend a majority of my time indoors. I used to play the drums and I love to write, watch Netflix (New Girl and Black Mirror are my favs), and hang out with friends.
