Puente Cohort 3

Yareli Floriano Yareli 

Major & Future Career Goal: My major is Psychology and my future career goal (not 1000% sure yet but) I was thinking of becoming a therapist for younger children in hospitals.

Inspiration to complete college degree: Growing up, I saw my parents struggle daily just to get by. My father didn’t finish middle school, and my mom completed half of her freshman year while in Mexico. It was difficult for them to get jobs, which led to our family struggling financially. My biggest inspiration is to make my family proud. I do not want my kids to go through what I had to go through. I want to succeed financially and live a happy life. Thinking about my future and family is what keeps me going on days where I feel like completely giving up.

FloriselFlorisel

Major & Future Career Goal: I want to major in Liberal Arts(Univ Studies) with an emphasis in education. I am still not 100% sure on my future career goal yet, but I want to do something with education, like maybe teaching or helping design a better education system for future students.

Inspiration to complete college degree: I’m interested in that sort of thing while also being interested in subjects such as activism, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, and psychology.

This is why I’m so willing to figure out what I want to do so I can graduate and finish my degree.
