Lorena has been an employee at Golden West College since 2006—where she began in the Intercultural Center. Lorena has worn many hats while both a student and an employee of GWC. She is the recipient of the R. Dudley Boyce Student of the Year award in 2009: the same year she earned her A.A. degree in English Education. She earned her B.A. degree in Chican@/Latin@ Studies at CSULB in May of this year. In her spare time, Lorena enjoys spending time with her family, photography, and being a steward in her community. Lorena feels passionate about providing students opportunities to learn about other cultures through field trips, community collaborations, and interactive campus events.
