On the first day of class, I had the pleasure of meeting Colene Encarnado, a super friendly and outgoing human being. She is a second year at Cal State Long Beach as a Psychology major. She first entered the school as a nursing major but later decided that was not the path she was meant to take. Being born in the Philippines, she described to me the sacrifices her parents had to make to give her the life she has, especially her education. She expressed her interest in the arts and the appreciation she has towards fine arts specifically. It was great getting to know a little bit about her during the first week of the semester.
For more information on Colene, check out her blog which I doubt will disappoint!
