Sagrario Eusebio, Oakes Peer Adviser

About Me:

I was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco Mexico. At the age of five years old, my family and I moved to California. Education has always played a huge role in my life. As a child, I knew the importance of being educated. Coming from a low income family, I knew that the only way I can succeed was through education. I worked extremely hard to get to this point and I will continue working hard. Despite my financial and social hardships, I chose to fight for my education.

I am a transfer student from Mount San Antonio college. During the time I was there, I was part of the Dream program. The Dream program is a program that is dedicated for DACA and undocumented students. Later down the road, I became a peer mentor for this program. As an AB540 Latinx woman, I was able to share my experiences with the students as part of my leadership role. I understood the fear and anxiety of being a first generation college student. Through my experiences as a peer mentor, I learned that being a leader is not about being in charge, it is about being able to help, guide, encourage, and motivate that individual or community. As a peer mentor for the Oakes community, my main goal is to help, guide and encourage underrepresented students to complete a degree at UCSC.
