Claudia is a first generation Mexican and Salvadorean student from a family of four. She chose CSUF because she was originally a business major but after her second year she realized that major was not for her. She was not enjoying it and chose to explore an intro to criminal justice course. She was fascinated by all the things she was learning in the lecture and as time went by she chose to switch to a criminal justice major. She want to grow as a person and everyday there is something new to learn that comes with new experiences. She wants to be able to make a difference in peoples lives. She plans on furthering her education by going to grad school. She is a very motivated person and is always striving for more. #GoTitans
