Parnaz Boroon (She/Her)

Hello! My name is Parnaz Boroon. It is my first year of graduate school at Chico State in the Psychological Science MA program. Previously, I graduated from San Diego State University in May 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in biology. I believe that academic coaching is such an amazing opportunity to help students reach their fullest potential both inside and outside of school. When I was a college student in my undergraduate years, I observed as a resident advisor and through my own experience that college can be incredibly overwhelming and there is no shame in needing guidance and support. What I am looking forward to about the coaching program is being able to connect with students and make them feel heard and supported. I am certain that my past experiences will provide students with skills that will make them more confident in facing any obstacles and enjoying their time at Chico State. In my spare time, I enjoy making rings, watching YouTube podcasts, binge-watching reality TV shows, biking, meditating, and spending time with friends and family. I am originally from Los Angeles and have lived in San Diego for five years so SoCal has a big place in my heart!
