Hello! My name is Jasmin Peña, pronouns she/her/hers. I am a first generation student from Pasadena, Ca. Currently I am studying Sociology and History with a minor in Chi studies. I am part of student organizations on campus such as: La Raza Pre-Law, MEChA, Bridge, and MURALS. I am currently doing research regarding the threat on DACA and how it affects UC Davis undergraduate students. Come by if you ever want to talk about how to get involved on campus or if you have questions about undergraduate research, study abroad, grad school or simply want to laugh at memes!
