Hey everyone! My name is Brenda. I was born in Los Angeles, California, and have moved around a bit. I went to and graduated from Arroyo Valley High School in San Bernardino, California. I am currently a third year at UC Berkeley majoring in either Business Administration or Mathematics to teach with the Cal Teach program. This is my second year with YSP and fourth semester as a Team Leader.
I like working in education, with students and have actually had experience teaching and working with kids since my sophomore year of high school. I love helping others and giving back to my community, which is why I am so excited to be with YSP again this year and to meet all of our mentors and mentees!
Interests/Hobbies: I like to travel with my family, go to the movies with friends, go bowling, listen to music, and volunteer.
Favorite TV Shows:
The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Dallas
The Wanted, One Direction, and Imagine Dragons
Peter Pan, The Lion King (really any Disney movie), and Despicable Me
