Peer Mentor Available for PSCI Advising

Vanessa Cota, Peer Mentor

3rd Year, Political Science

Office hours: M noon-1p.m. & T 4:30-5:30p.m.

I was born and raised in Southern California to immigrant parents. I study Political Science to better understand the world around me. I’m really interested in Third World liberation movements and grassroots organizing. I’ve been involved in community organizing since I was about 16 years old. I’m mostly involved in issues involving immigration, the environment, and education. On campus, I’m involved in M.E.Ch.A., Oh Snap!, and the Latinx Center. I also play for the Women’s Rugby Club here at Humboldt State so come watch some rugby when you can! When I’m not at school or doing any of these things I like to browse the web for music and memes. I also enjoy herbalism, cooking, aromatherapy, and stand-up comedy as forms of self care! If you have any questions about the major or any other school related topics, shoot me an email and I’d be more than happy to help you navigate those spaces! Peace!
