Week 11 Student Interview: Elizabeth Banuelos

This week, I met with Elizabeth Banuelos. She is  3rd year at CSULB and a kineseology major. As I expected from her major, she wants to be a physical therapist after she graduates from graduate school. She also wants to get her graduate degree at CSULB. She does consider herself artisitc for she took seven years of art classes. Even though she stopped due to college, she wishes to continue her talents in the future. She even wishes to venture out into different fields of art, like theater. Her hobbies include volleyball and painting. She is the middle child in her family and has a cousin that lives with her, She says that being a middle child is a good and bad thing. She is the only girl in her family so she doesn’t feel ignored. I asked her for any advice for a first year student and her tips were:

1. be organized

2. don’t be afraid to experience new things

3. you are still young, so the time to explore is now

Thank you for your interview Elizabeth!


Week 10 Student Interview: Irene Shin

This week I met with a classmate of mine named Irene Shin. She is a first year here at CSULB just like me. She commutes because she is from the town of Cypress, which is close by here. She is a pre nursing major and hope to become a nurse after she graduates from CSULB. However, she knows the nursing program here is extremely difficult to get into, so her back up plan is to become a criminal justice major if she doesn’t get accepted into the nursing program here at CSULB.

About her personal life, she has one younger brother, a TV show she likes is The Walking Dead, and she plays the clarinet.

Before coming to CSULB, her first choice school was UCLA, but because of her rejection, she came to this fabulous school instead.

It was nice talking to you Irene!
