My name is Carolina Trujillo. I am from Portland Oregon and graduated from The International School of Beaverton. My major is Psychology. I wanted to be on MSU because I believe that diversity is very important. I wanted to be apart of a group that could bring a community of different cultures, perspectives and lifestyles together and just have fun (: I enjoy doing makeup, watching YouTube, sleeping, and spending time with my family.

My name is Gabriela Acevedo and I am a sophomore this year majoring in Education with a minor in Spanish. In the future I would like to become a Middle School or High School Teacher. I am a graduate of Central High School located in Independence OR. and happen to live minutes away from campus. On my free time i enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends and traveling. My hobbies include; reading, sports, listening to music, and being involved on campus. This is my second year as part of the Executive Board and I have enjoyed my time being part of this organization. I have been able to expand my knowledge on leadership and communication skills that I will continue using in my future careers, as well as get out of my comfort zone. MSU is welcoming and always feels like home.

Hi, my name is Blanca Miranda. I was born in Cuerámaro Guanajuato, México but raised in Arroyo Grande, California. I lived in Salem, Oregon for about two years and graduated from Sprague High School. I’m currently a sophomore and majoring in Early Childhood Education. Hope to one day become a Kindergarten teacher. I like going on swims, runs, watch TV shows, and just go on late night walks. MSU helped me in many ways, one being that it helped me with my communication skills. I want to be part of an organization that helps others in so many ways.

My name is Jasmine Sosa-Santiago. I am from Dallas, Oregon. I graduated from Dallas High School and I am currently a sophomore pursuing a major in biology. I currently do not have that much time for any hobbies, but I guess one of my current hobbies would be watching movies. I chose MSU because when I attended their meetings/events during new student week they made me feel welcomed. It became like a home away from home, because everyone was so caring and friendly. I knew it was something that I wanted to not only be a part of but also be.
