Paulina Rivas

Academic Coach
Public Health Major

This is Paulina, she joined the STAR Center Fall of 2022. She is a First-Gen in her third year as a Public Health major. When she first started her college career, she was a biology major but with great mentoring, she was able to find Public Health and has enjoyed it ever since. She grew up in Gonzales, Ca but moved to Fresno, the summer before her second year. When she is not busy with school, she enjoys going out with friends, trying new restaurants, spending time with family, watching movies, and also going outside for walks. She is excited for the year and hopes it brings great memories and opportunities for all of us!
