STUDENT: Araceli Chipres-Jimenez
CAMPUS: UC Santa Barbara
INTERNSHIP: California Department of Education - Language Policy Office
INTERNSHIP HIGHLIGHT: "The entire experience was amazing. I had the opportunity to work with some of the kindest people I have ever met, including the Superintendent of Public Instruction himself, Mr. Tom Torlakson. In terms of the work that I did in the span of abut 7 weeks, the greatest reward is know that it was not in vain. A few of my assignments will be published in the CDE website, and all of the assignments I worked on will be directly impacting administrators, teachers, parents, and students." 
FUN FACT: "I have been studying the French language and culture for the past 8 years and I am finally visiting Paris this upcoming fall. I also have a fear of long international flights so wish me luck!"
CAREER GOALS: "I am currently interested in working in a public interest law firm where I can advocate for young women's and underrepresented peoples' right to equal education. We live in a very progressive era, but there is still a lot of work to be done and I am ready for the challenge."
