My name is Monica Robledo Cornejo I am in my Junior year at Sonoma State University in California. I am working towards finishing my Bachelor Degree in Psychology with a minor in Queer Studies. As a McNair Scholar, I am conducting research on the distinct communication styles among the undocumented population. Currently, I am working for a community college as a Program Specialist for the Student Success Team where I am working to help students succeed in an academic and personal level.
My academic goal is to earn a PhD in the Communication Studies Discipline with an Interpersonal and Cultural emphasis. Graduation rates among underrepresented students are not high; with this degree I plan to become a Professor and mentor underrepresented students to help further their education.
