Cynthia PoncianoPersonal Statement:
I am excited to cultivate a collaborative relationship with students to help them gain the skills necessary to become the best version of themselves. Attending college can be a stressful experience for students, especially for students from under-served backgrounds. Therefore, it is important for me to explore the discrimination and oppression students face to advocate for social justice on campus and in their lives. I am grateful for the opportunity to become part of the SCS family and to continue grow professionally during my time here. In my spare time, I enjoy reading gardening, taking road trips, and spending time with friends and family.
