Hello everyone! My name is Leslie Nunez and I am majoring in Nutrition Science with a concentration in Physiology and Metabolism. I am a transfer student from East Los Angeles College and have been really lucky to find a great support system in CNR and the Transfer Student Center (TSC). In addition to being a PAL, I am also involved in the TSC, the Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (URAP), the Berkeley Student Cooperative and the School of Public Health. My career goal is to become a physician practicing in historically marginalized communities like my own. I strive to be a part of a dual degree program where I will be able to earn a medical degree and a master's of public of health in order to learn more about how social determinants affect health outcomes and how I can contribute to improving these. From experience, I know that asking for help may be difficult, but if you find people who will support you, you will get much more from your Berkeley experience. Please come talk to me or email me about anything and I hope that Berkeley becomes a place where you can grow and learn about yourself like it has been for me!
